SQL FOR POD

WHY USE POD FOR SQL DATABASES?

SQL Server enables your DevOps team to build modern applications, using the programming languages they are skilled at, with the peace of mind that they are using the least vulnerable database available (over the last seven years in the NIST vulnerabilities database.) With POD, all your team needs to do is spin up a VM as your database server. From there, they can run multiple SQL database instances with the scalability, performance and availability that your mission-critical applications need. They can then spin up another database server on a separate VM to enable either failover clustering for greater resiliency, or sharding, which allows you to split database across multiple servers for more concurrent operations. A multi-node POD allows you to enable this and more, such as DR failovers.

HOW POD IS GREAT FOR SQL

With POD, your nodes are completely dedicated to and controlled by you. You get complete control over how much of your capacity is dedicated to each application and database, allowing you to guarantee performance and remove the traditional bottlenecks you typically see from shared, legacy Cloud resources. On top of this, our team will help you to architect, deploy and secure your POD during the build process – following the industry best practices. This helps you get the best price-to-performance ratio, without compromising on speed or security.

Experts on hand
Our team will do an initial assessment of your environment to remove any barriers to POD, and help make the migration a smooth process following best practise guidelines.
Guaranteed performance
With an all-flash NetApp storage array, POD guarantees 500 IOPS per TB, with the ability to burst up to 5x at no additional cost, for leading VM performance.
10Gbps backbone
With your databases running on our Fibre network, your mission-critical applications benefit from ultra-low latency and guaranteed 100% uptime.
Built to spec
Every POD is built your exact business requirements, allowing you to specify everything from the CPU, to memory and types of storage used.

DATABASE SOLUTIONS

SQL SERVER 2017

SQL Server 2017 brings with it the ability to deploy SQL-powered databases on Linux and in Docker containers, as well as on Windows. This gives developers more flexibility to work in their preferred development environments and easily port their code across to SQL Server.

  • Windows, Docker containers, Linux
  • Real Time Operational Analytics
  • Encryption at rest and in motion
  • JSON Support
  • Python, Java, Node.js, PHP, Ruby and .NET framework

  • MONGODB FOR POD

    MongoDB is rapidly becoming the database deployment of choice, especially for developers. It takes the best of relational databases and improves upon them with the innovations brought about by NoSQL. In MongoDB’s latest release, there are a few key updates that will streamline deployments and maximise the productivity of your developers, a key attribute of a successful DevOps team.
