Web host Internap and NoSQL database provider Aerospike announced a partnership Wednesday to offer a turnkey “fast big data” solution. The platform consists of the Aerospike flash-optimized, in-memory NoSQL database on Internap’s AgileSERVER bare-metal cloud.

Aerospike was recently called “visionary” among operational database management systems by Gartner. Its database is used as a user profile store for online advertisers and digital marketers to personalize customer interactions across multiple channels.

By combining Aerospike’s database solution for big data-driven applications with the speed of Internap’s bare-metal solid-state drives, the partners are offering a turn-key platform for the storage and analysis of terabytes of data from billions of transactions in milliseconds.

“The Aerospike database is designed to meet the needs of a new class of Internet-scale applications that must personalize consumer interactions based on what customers are doing with their devices right now,” said Srini V. Srinivasan, Aerospike founder and vice president of engineering and operations. “Our integrated solution with Internap’s bare-metal cloud will ease time to market for our customers and allow them to operate at speed and scale twice as cost effectively as they could with virtualized public cloud offerings.”

10 Gigabit Ethernet to the server is available as an add-on for companies requiring high-bandwidth network connectivity among clustered servers, and qualified customers of Aerospike’s free Community Edition can access a two-week free trial of the Internap bare-metal cloud.

Bare metal infrastructure approaches are gaining in popularity as applications with large data volumes proliferate. UK bare metal IaaS provider Bigstep launched earlier in October, and Verizon’s State of the Enterprise Cloud report for 2013 identified big data as a driving force in the cloud market.

Internap acquired Canadian web host and colocation provider iWeb last week, which broadened its portfolio of services and grew the company’s data center footprint.
