How to Choose your Deployment Mode

You can use this guide to decide what type of deployment will be best for your performance needs.

Using ZebClient on premises requires a local acceleration layer to compensate for the delays caused by the network uplink. Using ZebClient in the cloud allows you to take advantage of the cloud data center network infrastructure. When the ZebClient components and cloud storage are placed in the same location, you receive ideal conditions for your cluster.

Reference of Test Results

Below, you can explore our test results from sample workloads and configurations.

Batched Reads and Writes

Batched workloads require maximum performance in both read and write operations. The test first reads and then writes a substantial volume of data, which is a workload typical for ETL processes or batch training scenarios.

Small File Performance

This test is a race between clusters who can write and read 1000 4k files the fastest. Converged cluster deals with this matter in the most effective way, keeping up with much more expensive Tiered in write operations and surpassing it in read operations due to closely-knit architecture.

Cluster Configuration Used for the Example

  • Cloud provider: Azure

  • Agents: 3x Standard_L32s_v3

  • Database: Standard_D4s_v4

  • Blob Object Storage

  • (Tiered mode only) Servers 4x Standard_L8s_v3
