Every so often we come across a use case that makes every hour of work put into our Full Metal Cloud worth it many times over. Today we’re in the happy position of sharing one of those use cases with you. AlignAlytics ran Elasticsearch queries on 10 million documents (approx. 4 GB of compressed data) and consistently saw with Bigstep a 100-200% performance improvement over their existing dedicated servers. The specs on their machines were quite similar to those of our Full Metal Compute Instances, which makes this one of the closest “apples to apples” comparisons we’ve done.
