Silk Solves Your Microsoft SQL Server in the Cloud Challenges

Experience life on the cloud with no restrictions. Boost the performance of your Microsoft SQL workloads while spending a whole lot less on your cloud budget.

No IOPS or
Throughput Limitation

With no limit on throughput, IOPS, or disk size, you can easily scale up without the need for more VMs. Silk offers the same — or better — performance as on-prem, sub-millisecond latency, and the ability to dynamically scale performance up and down automatically.

Block Size Agnostic
Architecture

Inconsistent block sizes can dramatically hinder the performance of your entire database. Silk’s patent-protected technology allows for consistent low latency and ultra-high performance that is completely independent of Read/Write block size or pattern.

Shared Volumes
Allowing Clusters

Your SQL Server database is more accessible than ever with Silk. The Silk Platform makes it possible to access your data from any VM.

Zero-Footprint Clones

Create clones instantly with no performance impact and without taking up any additional capacity. Clones can be mounted for read/write purposes, serving to create additional working environments, at a very low cost to capacity. All with availability across zones, regions, and environments.
