Scaling a Nuix rest cluster to one terabyte per hour
The increasing volume and complexity of data continue to challenge the ability to defensibly process terabytes of unstructured content for eDiscovery, investigations, regulatory compliance, and other use cases. To address the need for increasing throughput, Nuix has developed a new Nuix Core Engine REST clustering capability.
In benchmarking, we found a Nuix REST Cluster running in Amazon Web Services (AWS) exceeded 1 terabyte (TB) per hour processing throughput on complex real-world data for nominal AWS infrastructure costs. This effectively demonstrates that the Nuix cluster can scale to meet the most demanding organizational needs.
This extended version of the white paper includes hardware and testing configurations, cost summaries, and a detailed breakdown of the test data.
