I have used M3.2xlarge instances in the past because of the
compute(8CPU)/memory(30GB RAM)combo. I also played around with
C3.8xlarge's using similar to test against the same dataset for
performance and was able to double the performance.
I am to create a new cluster with 1.5 mil records occupying ~ 15GB.
I was looking at general community feedback to see what successes people
have had with EC2 instance types and their Riak/levelDB.
What is a good instance for this? High Memory? High Compute? or Both?
I am thinking of using 5 x M4.2xlarge 8CPU/32GB RAM for this with
Provisioned IOPS but I am thinking of stepping down to 5 x M4.xlarge
instead (4CPU/16GB) which would be ~$1000/month less for cost. I'll
build it today, init the data, and start load testing. As with Riak, I
could always add the appropriate EC2 type nodes later and subtract the
Thanks in advance,
