Infrastructure Options

Cube Cloud provides four infrastructure options to host your Cube deployments:

  • Shared infrastructure - your deployments are sharing compute resources and network with other customers. Data in-motion and data at-rest are both on the Cube Cloud side.
  • Dedicated infrastructure - your deployments reside in a dedicated VPC inside a Cube Cloud account and do not share resources with anyone else. Data in-motion and data at-rest are both on the Cube Cloud side.
  • Dedicated infrastructure with CSPS - same as dedicated infrastructure, but data at-rest is stored in a customer-supplied object store.
  • Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) - Cube Cloud data plane is fully hosted in your cloud account.

Shared infrastructure

This is the most common deployment option that is the easiest to get started with. In this scenario, everything is deployed on the Cube Cloud infrastructure in one of our Shared VPCs. Cube Cloud Control Plane takes care of creating, scaling, and monitoring your Cube Deployments, as well as managing Cube Store and persisting pre-aggregated data. This option requires the least effort to set up and is available on all pricing plans.

Please note that some Enterprise features, such as VPC peering or PrivateLink are not available on the shared infrastructure. There's also a possibility of resource contention ("noisy neighbor") problem.

Dedicated infrastructure

It is similar to the previous option, but each customer gets a Dedicated VPC within one of Cube Cloud's own cloud accounts that hosts only that customer's deployments. This option is great for most of the typical Enterprise use-cases as it provides a higher level of performance, as well as additional security and isolation. It is is available on the Enterprise (opens in a new tab) plan and above.

Dedicated infrastructure with CSPS

On the Enterprise Premier (opens in a new tab) plan, Cube Cloud offers a Customer-supplied pre-aggregation storage (CSPS) that allows moving all data at rest to the customer infrastructure. In this scenario, all Cube components reside on the Cube Cloud side. However, Cube Store uses a customer-provided object store for reading and persisting pre-aggregated data. This provides additional peace of mind when processing highly critical business or personal information.

BYOC

With Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) all the components interacting with private data are deployed on the customer infrastructure on a platform of choice (AWS/Azure/GCP) and managed by the Cube Cloud Control Plane via the Cube Cloud Operator. It is is available on the Enterprise Premier (opens in a new tab) plan.
