Avoid excessive cloud costs.
Simply get the performance and capacity you need.
With separate layers for performance and capacity, Silk eliminates the need to spend on excess capacity just to hit IOPS and throughput targets, or vice versa.
Silk pools cloud resources under multiple workloads, allowing performance to be consolidated. There’s no need to separately provision for at the workload level to achieve optimal performance.
Silk’s platform connects with compute VMs over the higher performance compute network, not the limited-capacity data network of cloud infrastructure. This allows Silk to support the most performance-intensive workloads, while eliminating the need to oversize compute VMs for better data network performance.
Database license costs grow with the number of vCPUs in your compute VMs. By rightsizing your compute VM, Silk gets rid of the need to overpay for unnecessary database licenses.
Silk creates instantaneous, zero-footprint snapshots of your mission-critical databases without requiring a fully-provisioned copy of your data. Make it easy to access copies or manage Dev/Test without redundant provisioning.
