High Performance Virtual Machines for Database Applications

Rapid.Space is a new provider of low cost, ethical yet high performance servers targeted at big data applications, high performance computing, software development and large database applications. Rapid.Space provisions on each server a single "dedicated virtual machine" which takes control of all resources of the server. Performance degradation for memory, CPU or 10 Gbps networking is not noticeable. Performance degradation for disk I/O is at most 30%, a 800% improvement compared to traditional storage virtualisation technologies used by some cloud computing services.
