Capacity Planning for Aerospike 2

Aerospike 2 Database is tuned for reliability and fast performance. However, efficient software needs to be deployed on the right hardware to get optimal results.

When setting up your Aerospike 2 Database, you’ll need a good hardware strategy to ensure that:

  • There are sufficient nodes and clusters to handle expected throughput (including peak traffic)
  • When a node fails, the cluster continues to operate and handle requests
  • The clusters have enough storage for the data
  • When data exceeds capacity, policies are in place to handle overflows gracefully
  • When a cluster fails, other clusters pick up the traffic load and users see minimal impact

Hardware Requirements:

For a discussion of hardware requirements and capacity, read this documentation page.
