The I3en family is a class of instances clearly targeted at storage-intensive workloads, but CPUs are still needed to process that data. The largest of the I3en, i3en.24xlarge, ships with 48 cores of the Xeon Platinum 8175M, clocking at 2.50GHz.
In this post we introduce the new Scylla workload prioritization mechanism, explaining the vision behind developing this feature and how it is implemented, and most importantly, we show you test results of how it performs in a real-world setting.
