Introducing the Silk Cloud DB Virtualization Platform on Azure
Enter Silk. The Silk Cloud DB Virtualization Platform sits between customers’ workloads and the underlying infrastructure, making it easy to accelerate cloud adoption by simply lifting and shifting the entire complex workload into the cloud. Silk delivers up to 10x faster performance compared to native cloud alone, without changing a thing about customers’ underlying applications or infrastructure. Through the use of enterprise data services – such as data reduction, zero-footprint snapshots, and inline deduplication – Silk users are able to reduce the number of cloud resources being used, in turn slashing their cloud bill by roughly 30%. With always-on availability and unbreakable data resiliency, Silk is the ideal solution for customers who are looking to move their most important data to the public cloud.
Silk accelerated eToro’s adoption of Azure, decreasing the time to adoption by 50%. Silk delivered game-changing performance, allowing eToro to complete hundreds of thousands of transactions per second. “We have some extremely IO-intensive databases. Silk was the only provider that actually promised and delivered on sub-millisecond latency for those database applications.” And with Silk’s consistently low response time under heavy loads, the eToro team is confident that its customers will be able to continue making trades.
Says Israel: “Silk allowed eToro to accelerate its Azure adoption while ensuring that we have sufficient scalability to support our growing community of customers with the highest performance.”
