  2. 2. 2 Confidential2  How can you map the options for running Big Data across clouds? Just follow these 4 steps:  Step 1: Decide What Access You Need  For a specific workload, NoSQL customers may want to have the following: 1. Access to mass storage servers for files and objects (not to be confused with block storage). 2. Access to High RAM options for running in-memory with the fastest possible response times. 3. Access to high-performance SSDs to run balanced workloads. 4. Access to general-purpose instances for dev and test or for workloads that don’t have specific performance SLAs.

It relates the maximum amount of RAM that can be provisioned on a single virtual machine to the maximum number of cores and the total number of compute instance options available by some of the major infrastructure providers, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), GoGrid, Google (GCE), Microsoft (Azure), and SoftLayer.

  5. 5. 5 Confidential5 Comparing Cloud Infrastructure Options for NoSQL © 2014 GoGrid  Step 3: Answer 3 Key Questions  This data helps you answer 3 key questions: 1. Which cloud providers offer an on-demand high memory instance? AWS and GoGrid offer the largest amount of RAM available on-demand. 2. How many cloud providers offer on-demand mass storage server options? Of the five providers included, only two offer on-demand mass storage options: AWS and GoGrid. 3. Which providers can I go to for general workloads? You can run a general workload on any of the providers, and this is where the Compute Instance Footprint becomes important.

Check out our solutions page for details on a 1-Button Deploy™ of Cassandra, Hadoop, HBase, and others. Then you can trial a full cluster for 14 days for free and have it up and running in less than 10 minutes.
  7. 7. 7 Confidential7  Conclusion  Beyond trialing a cluster and understanding the instance options for running NoSQL workloads, price and ease of use always come into play when choosing a cloud provider.  Learn More  This “how-to” is based on a blog post by Kole Hicks, Senior Director of Product Management at GoGrid: http://blog.gogrid.com/2014/04/11/comparing-cloud-infrastructure- options-running-nosql-workloads/ Comparing Cloud Infrastructure Options for NoSQL © 2014 GoGrid
