Hello dear AS team.
We are currently strongly considering Aerospike as database back-end for our cloud platform. It is exactly the kind of solution we are looking for in terms of throughput and latency.
However, the information on (potentially) deploying Aerospike in a virtual environment is very sparse. Our architecture’s complexity would increase tremendously if we had to deploy Aerospike outside of our virtual machines. It would thus be ideal if we could deploy Aerospike on a VM, even if we assign complete hard drives & CPUs.
To be more specific, is there anything you can tell us about Aerospike in regards of VMWare? Does running AS in a VM impact performance a lot? What scenarios are possible, and how could we make sure to still squeeze the maximum out?
We would really appreciate some input.
