Scenarios
  • CBM sets up a unified big data and computing platform in the Apache Hadoop framework to collect, store, analyze, search for, and mine high amounts of data. This helps you tap into the value of data and apply data to a wealth of scenarios, such as historical data statistics collection, interactive query, targeted marketing, fraud detection, and social network analysis.
  • CBM provides up to 16 TB (SATA HDD) * 12 capacity in a single instance to support massive data storage and high-speed read/write. It can bond two ENIs in a 100 Gigabit network to sustain unlimited data exchange.
  • With the secure and flexible VPC, you can allocate a logically isolated network space to protect your business and make it more reliable.
Big Data
  • An increasing number of enterprises are leveraging OpenStack to virtualize their private cloud platforms (KVM, Docker, etc.) and shift basic IT architectures towards resource sharing, with the aim to tackle performance bottlenecks during peak hours in the shared environment, make architectures more adaptive to businesses, and simplify system management.
  • CBM adopts Tencent Cloud's proprietary virtualization technology and supports nested virtualization to allow for the greatest freedom on the virtualization platform. It is the best choice to set up a private cloud virtualization platform.
  • In addition, VPC enables you to flexibly define networks as needed to build multiple virtualized network planes.
Virtualization
  • Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) are very attractive in their colorful images, grand scenes, multiple modes, and large-scale cross-server events. Players can see each other in the same region, and all their operations need to be broadcast in the view. When the number of players is large, high requirements are put on the load, stability, and network of the accessed server.
  • A game application has a short lifecycle. During the operations peak, you can rely on Tencent Cloud's huge resource pool to quickly add servers; when some features are to be disused and the value shrinks at the end of the lifecycle, you can purchase pay-as-you-go CBM instances on demand to reshape your cost structure and lower the TCO.
  • You can deploy the combat logic module of your game in CBM instances to accommodate high I/O and PPS based on the high performance of bare metal.
  • Moreover, Tencent Cloud IDCs are built with a security protection module that can well protect CBM instances from DDoS and CC attacks.
Gaming
  • Fluid mechanics, structural simulation, DNA sequencing, hydrocarbon exploration, and other HPC scenarios are highly sensitive to the performance, stability, and real-timeness of servers. CBM inherits the excellent computing capabilities of physical machines and can work with Tencent Cloud's customized CPUs to offer up to 256 cores in a single instance.
  • CBM provides latest GPU-optimized instances with heterogeneous hardware to accelerate HPC jobs at lower costs.
  • CBM HPC clusters are interconnected at a latency of 2–3 us over the RoCEv2 RDMA network and can be dynamically scaled for an even higher computing power. This also helps achieve a nearly linear computing acceleration ratio.
