Terms

persistent memory-optimized instance
Persistent memory-optimized instances adopt Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory (AEP) to provide you with in-memory databases that have a large capacity and are compatible with open source Redis. A persistent memory-optimized instance does not use disks to implement data persistence. It saves up to 30% of costs compared with an ApsaraDB for Redis Community Edition instance and provides almost the same performance in terms of throughput and latency. This helps improve the reliability of business data. For more information, see Persistent memory-optimized instances.
ESSD
Enhanced solid-state disks (ESSDs) of Alibaba Cloud. For more information about the related terms and performance levels of ESSDs, see ESSDs.
Note ESSDs are used only to store system operating data, such as logs and backup data. ESSDs are not used as the media to read or write data.

Performance

The specifications in this topic apply to persistent memory-optimized instances in the standard or cluster architecture.

Architecture Performance
Standard The overall performance of standard instances is as described in the instance specifications table.
Cluster The overall performance equals the number of shards multiplied by the performance of each shard. For example, a cluster instance has four shards of the tair.scm.standard.4m.32d type, which is the first instance type in Instance specifications. The following items show the performance of each shard:
  • CPU cores: 6 cores
  • Bandwidth: 96 MB/s
  • Maximum number of connections: 30,000

The following items show the overall performance of the cluster instance:

  • CPU cores: 24 cores
  • Bandwidth: 384 MB/s
  • Maximum number of connections: 120,000

Notes about CPU cores

To ensure service stability, the system reserves a CPU core to process background tasks. In a cluster instance or a read/write splitting instance, the system reserves a CPU core for each data shard or each read replica to process background tasks.
