Software Defined Storage: 10 things you need to know

Software Defined Storage: 10 things you need to know

One of the big reasons users are interested in SDS is due to the potential cost savings. It seems logical that if you move storage onto commodity hardware, it will become a lot cheaper, right? Not necessarily. Whether or not it’s cheaper to download software that provides an abstraction layer stretching across a heterogeneous set of commodity hardware depends on a number of things.

Storage Redefined

Storage Redefined

SDS is not a completely established market. However it is picking up very well,” says Shriranga Mulay, Senior Vice President, IT Engineering, Netmagic Solutions. Netmagic is in the process of implementing SDS and has partnered with CloudByte, a storage software vendor, to implement ‘Elastistor’ for their internal requirements and for serving customers. “We will be completing it in the next couple of months and it will help us to keep scaling our storage, according to the requirements. For our cloud customers, SDS will give a choice of choosing the storage they want and get the required performance levels,” he adds.

Why storage needs Quality of Service

Why storage needs Quality of Service

A heavy database query could also easily soak up all the I/O available, starving the web and email servers that are sharing the same storage. As for the impact of a VDI bootstorm on shared storage, anyone else trying to use that storage might as well take a coffee break because they are not going to get a lot done.

All of this is especially true for public-cloud operators, whose very existence and profitability is predicated on being able to share resources such as storage across multiple customers or tenants.

Is CloudByte really the future of storage?

Is CloudByte really the future of storage?

CloudByte is definitely worth checking out.  They’re offering many features such as working with multiple protocols, QoS, and storage in multiple geographic locations that many other scale-out storage vendors are not offering.

QoS, the next feature you’ll be asking for

QoS, the next feature you’ll be asking for

QoS is a concept that is very common now in Ethernet networking and it became very important a few years ago when the number of connected devices grew to a level where the noise generated by second tier applications was so loud it compromised mission critical workloads or specific vertical applications (like VOIP for example). Prioritization of IPs or protocols, band allocation, throughput throttling and others are all at the base of mechanisms thought up to grant the right QoS and, consequently, meet the required SLAs. Startups like Solidfire and CloudByte are really showing interesting approaches: the latter is implementing a sort of virtual controller (each virtual controller/tenant has its set of data volumes and QoS is controlled at that level) while the former has a very sophisticated and fine granular mechanism at the LUN level.

Scaling Storage In Conventional Arrays

Scaling Storage In Conventional Arrays

It is amazing that something as simple-sounding as making an array get bigger can be so complex, yet scaling storage is notoriously difficult. Our storage protocols just weren’t designed with scaling in mind, and they lack the flexibility needed to dynamically address multiple nodes. Data protection is extremely difficult and data movement is always time-consuming.

Storage Field Day 4: CloudByte

CloudByte is a company partly Indian and partly American, with offices both in Bangalore and Cupertino. Their main product is ElastiStor: it’s a software only solution able to transform a server with some local storage (or connected to a remote storage) in a storage array. Several ElastiStor machines can be connected together to form a distributed, scale-out storage.

Determining Storage Performance Needs is Part Science and Part Art

This morning, I had the pleasure of listening to Greg Goelz, CEO of CloudByte, as he discussed the products provided by his company with the delegates from Gestalt IT’s Storage Field Day 4.  As is generally pretty well known, storage has been one of the more difficult aspects of the data center to tame, a problem that has been exacerbated by virtualization and the inclusion of workloads running with all kinds of different I/O patterns.

The Final IT Evolution – Cloud

The Final IT Evolution – Cloud

New storage technologies are key to the cloud evolution. Established vendors may recognize this fact but their legacy technologies and install base are holding them back. Further, new technologies such as SSD drives and IP encapsulations such as FCoE are taking up much of their resources and focus. So, new players – such as CloudByte and other startups – with new approaches are critical.
