Our aerospike cluster is currently on v3.12 on 15 i3.4xlarge instances. From a cost perspective we could easily move to 4 i3.metal servers and keep the same storage/cpu and even gain a little on memory.
We are currently setting up some benchmarks to try to see if there is a large difference between virtualized / on-metal performance, but I’m curious if anyone has any experience moving to the i3.metal instances. Was there a large increase in I/O throughput? Any downsides? Any hints on tuning that woudl be different from the virtualized instances?
Thanks in advance!
