Silk's Architecture Fits Your Infrastructure to Your Needs

Hack the cloud stack to get leading performance for your capacity needs

To get the most performance storage, you need to break free from traditional storage itself. Silk on VMs builds our capacity layer out of virtual machines instead of storage to get the absolute maximum throughput and IOPS from the cloud at sub-millisecond latency.

Level up cloud native managed disks to balance resilience and performance

Applications that are especially sensitive can leverage Silk on Managed Disks. Silk composes its capacity layer using cutting-edge managed disk resources such as Microsoft Azure Premium v2 disks, combining the inherent benefits of those disks with Silk’s performance layer, enterprise data services, and resilient architecture.

The Fastest Reads You Need!

Whether you use Silk on VMs or Managed Disks, we've got options to give you the fastest reads possible.

Read Transaction Boost

Minimize Latency While Maximizing Transactions

Handle more users, customers, and transactions with Silk's Read Acceleration. Added caching in Silk's performance layer enables up to 2.1 million IOPS from one Silk Data Pod, all while further reducing latency. Reduce transaction times and improve your conversion or accelerate your internal development and innovation!

Read Throughput Boost

Cut Out the Middleman to Get Up to 26.4 GB/s

Your most data hungry applications need special handling. Silk provides extreme amounts of throughput by minimizing the data path to the bare essentials, all while maintaining our flexible performance and storage layers.
