I am new to aerospike and experimenting with it.
I am running Aerospike on EC2. I used the following link http://www.aerospike.com/docs/deploy_guides/aws/install/ I picked an i2.4xlarge. I am using the 4x800 SSD as ephemeral SSD Instance stores (NOT EBS backed) because I am assuming read and write will be faster.
After some writes and reads I did a reboot of the machine and to my surprise the data were still there.
However I was under the impression the data on the ephemeral disk would get lost when stopping or rebooting the instance.
Is that expected behavior?
Is the AMI found here: http://www.aerospike.com/docs/deploy_guides/aws/install/ an instance store-backed AMI or an Amazon EBS-backed AMI
Thank you for your help
