Verizon 5G Wavelength Instances

These instances are only accessible from the Verizon network. When accessing your HarperDB instance please ensure you are connected to the Verizon network, examples include Verizon 5G Internet, Verizon Hotspots, or Verizon mobile devices.


HarperDB on Verizon 5G Wavelength brings HarperDB closer to the end user exclusively on the Verizon network resulting in as little as single-digit millisecond response time from HarperDB to the client.


Instances are built via AWS Wavelength. You can read more about AWS Wavelength here:

HarperDB 5G Wavelength Storage

HarperDB 5G Wavelength utilizes AWS Elastic Block Storage (EBS) General Purpose SSD (gp2) volumes. This is the most common storage type used in AWS, as it provides reasonable performance for most workloads, at a reasonable price.


AWS EBS gp2 volumes have a baseline performance level, which determines the number of IOPS it can perform indefinitely. The larger the volume, the higher it’s baseline performance. Additionally, smaller gp2 volumes are able to burst to a higher number of IOPS for periods of time.


Smaller gp2 volumes are perfect for trying out the functionality of HarperDB, and might also work well for applications that don’t perform many database transactions. For applications that perform a moderate or high number of transactions, we recommend that you use a larger HarperDB volume. Learn more about the impact of IOPS on performance here:
