Peak Announces Peak Lightning in the Cloud℠
Peak Lightning in the Cloud℠ is the definitive solution to scaling large memory and compute requirements in the cloud
Peak Hosting, the industry’s most trusted leader in Operations-as-a-Service, managed hosting services and hybrid cloud computing, today announced Peak Lightning in the Cloud℠, the definitive solution to scaling large memory and compute requirements in the cloud.
Peak’s partnership with Dell Computers to deliver their R815 dedicated server with 512 GB of RAM and sixty four (64) 2.3 GHz cores blazes new terrain for lightning fast performance, at the unheard of price point of $1999 per month.
After a careful survey of the cloud landscape, Peak uncovered a huge gap in high performance, scalable cloud solutions for large CPU and memory intensive applications, especially databases. The largest cloud instances available today are a paltry 68 GB of memory, which is hardly sufficient for today’s massively parallel computing clustered applications like MemCache, NoSQL, as well as traditional relational databases. Each Peak Lightning in the Cloud ℠ server delivers about 8 times the memory and over 10 times the compute power as the largest instances available in public clouds today.
“In the cloud market today, even the largest instances are tiny for large application needs. Companies are forced to cobble together up to hundreds of these inadequate instances, further reducing their performance and raising their costs. At the end of the day, the typical public cloud environment leaves a lot to be desired” stated Jeffrey Papen, Founder and CEO of Peak Hosting.” Mr. Papen further commented “Peak’s Lightning offering gives customers in the no-SQL, big data, or any memory or CPU intensive application the tools they need to be successful at price points unprecedented in the cloud industry.”
