The Full Metal Cloud provides all the power and privacy of bare metal with the flexibility of the cloud, making it the
    highest performance public cloud in the world. Hadoop, NoSQL DBs, search and analytics engines reach up to 500%
    better performance running on Full Metal compared to virtualised public clouds.
  • Hadoop, NoSQL, Search and Analytics ready to go on Full Metal

    It takes literally minutes to design and deploy an entire big data solution
    on bare metal compute instances and storage, with the Full Metal Cloud.
    We've integrated all the essential applications you need to start analyzing
    any type of data and get answers immediately. Get started
      Cloudera's Distribution of Hadoop (CDH)
      Couchbase Server
      Elasticsearch + Logstash + Kibana (ELK)
      Splunk Enterprise
  • Hadoop on Full Metal: CDH

    The best of both worlds is finally available for Hadoop: bare metal performance and the flexibility of the cloud. Full Metal Hadoop Clusters based on the latest version of Cloudera Hadoop (CDH) can be deployed on demand with either all-SSD distributed storage or distributed + local spindle storage.

  • NoSQL on Full Metal: Couchbase

    The infamous sub-millisecond response time can nou be achieved in the cloud with Couchbase Server running on our Full Metal Compute Instances. With no hypervisor getting in the way of in-memory read/writes and 40 Gbps wire-speed networking, Couchbase in the cloud has never been faster.

  • Search & Analytics on Full Metal: Elasticsearch ELK

    Get the best performance/price for Elasticsearch by combining Full Metal Compute Instances with all-SSD distributed storage. Scale seamlessly to tens of nodes while maintaning lightning fast performance across the board - over 30.000 IOPS per Elasticsearch cluster.
    Get started with Elasticsearch on Full Metal
  • Log analysis on Full Metal: Splunk

    "Using the bare metal hardware as a baseline, Splunk Enterprise generally indexes data about 30% slower on a virtual machine (VM) than it does on a standard reference machine.[...] This is a best-case scenario that does not account for resource contention with other active VMs on the same physical server." – Splunk website. Enough said.

Economics of scaling NoSQL in the cloud

We tested literally tens of setups with Couchbase,
Elasticsearch and Impala to arrive at the best
performance/price level for each. These are our findings.

Getting the most out of Impala

An entire series of tests based on 8 different hardware
configurations have baffled us and proven, yet again, that
high performance is a tricky thing to achieve.
