Provide local ssd instances in GCP
In terms of throughput it would be great to be able to configure an Atlas cluster based on local ssd / nvme GCP VM instances.
We have some write heavy applications like IoT and large documents.
Hi Stefan, One great thing about GCP is the terrific storage performance built in: do you have a workload that would benefit from the unique attributes of local SSD, namely ultra low latency or random IO?
There are tradeoffs to going down the road of offering local SSDs, namely it takes much longer to vertically scale because a rolling sync is required. There is a different durability profile as well.
