Webinar Replay: How Elastic Block Storage Can Optimize Your Application

Finding the right storage for high IO databases can be a real challenge. You don’t just need flexibility, availability or high performance; you need them all (preferably at a price that won’t break the bank).

If you’re looking to learn more about your different storage options, we have something that can help. The video of our webinar on the capabilities of Elastic SSD Block Storage is now available for viewing below and will shed some light on why Elastic SSD Block Storage is a viable option for ecommerce sites, SaaS applications and more.

Redefine Application Performance with Elastic SSD Block Storage from Codero Hosting and SolidFire.

During the presentation, we received some fantastic questions, so we wanted to take a moment to answer them here.

1. How much does elastic SSD block storage cost with Codero? And what storage sizes are available?

Elastic SSD block storage is priced out by Input/Output Operations Per Second (IOPS) tiers. The 1000 IOPS is 50 cents per GB, the 2000 IOPS is 75 cents per GB and the 3000 IOPS is $1 per GB. With this system, you only pay for as much as you use. In terms of the storage sizes available, the standard size is 32 Gigabytes and we can increase it by increments of 32 gigs.

2. If I need more performance, what are my options?

If you need higher performance, then you can easily upgrade the IOPS tier. Say you were on the 5000 IOPS tier and need more performance, you could upgrade to the 2000 or 3000 IOPS tier. The change is simple, non-disruptive, and won’t result in any downtime.

3. How many outages has Codero Object Storage had in the past three months?

Zero! And that includes maintenance and swapping nodes. We’ve been fully online and fully QoSed (meeting our Quality of Service) the entire time.

Thanks for joining us, and we look forward to seeing you at the next webinar. Interested in finding out more about block storage? Learn more here.
