Challenge

Kingsoft Cloud* needs to differentiate itself  with new cloud services at optimized cost and needs the agility to be able to address customer demand with scalable cloud solutions. Kingsoft Cloud wanted to deploy more instances which requires higher memory capacity, but the cost of DRAM at large capacities was prohibitive.

Solution

  • Kingsoft Cloud* chose 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory operating in Memory Mode versus a DRAM-only solution for the company’s Cloud Redis* Service and was able to achieve 1.3X TCO benefit1234 while meeting SLA requirements.
  • Customers can have more instances running per server at a given cost, while maintaining the same SLA (see chart for performance improvement)2.

 

 

“We chose Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane DC persistent memory for the combined value and ability to deliver improved TCO for our Cloud Redis Service. We can now maintain our business requirements and meet specified SLAs at lower cost, while ensuring we’re delivering superior level of service our customers expect.”

Liu Tao, Co-Partner & GM of Public Cloud BU, Kingsoft Cloud

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
