Hosting BrightstarDb

Morning

What are my hosting options for BrightstarDB. On a standalone remote server I guess is fine, but is it practical to host in the cloud using the likes of Azure, AWS, Rackspace?

Hi,

If you host in a VM then it should be just fine. You may want to either change the default port that B* runs on or perhaps (better?) put either IIS or nginx in front of it. B* does get blocked on disk IO, so latency will be an issue if you map the data volume to a service like Azure / AWS block storage - its been a while since I tried this and I know there have been performance improvements in those services and you can even pay for guaranteed IOPS in AWS, but its something to just be aware of.

Cheers
