  • RAID AID: The Analytical Interface Dashboard for ZFS Lustre
    RAID AID: The Analytical Interface Dashboard for ZFS Lustre Rich Brueckner at InsideHPC and Yugendra Guvvala, VP of Technology at RAID Inc Recorded: Dec 16 2016 5 mins
    Rich Brueckner at InsideHPC discusses the RAID Inc Lustre-tuned cross-platform dashboard. This file system agnostic analytical tool enables centralized self control over the full range of computing resources, such as Lustre ZFS and Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre.

    Lustre Over ZFS storage solutions offer greater performance for HPC technical computing, cloud, big data center and high density elastic storage.

    Lustre with ZFS brings a robust, scalable file system with features not available in other file systems. ZFS enables economical storage for Lustre solutions.

    RAID AID provides a comprehensive set of metrics using open-source protocols to measure, monitor and alert for example, monitoring IOPS, latency, capacity for mission critical applications. The AID tool intelligently provides a real-time optimized pipeline in which overlapping workloads run efficiently, reliably, and at the lowest-practical cost.

    Key Features Include:
    •Browser based GUI with alerting and logging
    •Real-time analytics and dashboard level metrics

  • RAID Inc. Steps up with ZFS on Lustre at SC16
    RAID Inc. Steps up with ZFS on Lustre at SC16 Rich Brueckner at InsideHPC and Brad Merchant from RAID Inc. Recorded: Dec 1 2016 4 mins
    InsideHPC's Rich Brueckner and Brad Merchant from RAID Inc. discuss the Intel Lustre ZFS solution.

    "RAID Inc. offers a suite of building block product families that can be purchased individually or in conjunction with other RAID products to solve customer’s needs in the most demanding data-storage environments.

    As the leader in large storage systems, RAID Inc expert engineers can provide the massively scalable open source Lustre on ZFS file system. Lustre has become the de facto choice for HPC, Bio-Science, and real-time Big Data analytics with a better than 50% share of the HPC storage market.

    RAID Inc. working as partners with the Intel® Enterprise Edition of Lustre team has successfully deployed Lustre on ZFS solutions with up to 180 GB/s performance for better than 17 petabytes capacity. These Intel® supported deployments of Lustre are based on RAID Inc. vendor-agnostic storage platforms to reduce storage costs by better than 50% versus traditional storage.
  • Storage Spaces Direct Hyperconvergence in Windows Server 2016
    Storage Spaces Direct Hyperconvergence in Windows Server 2016 Moderator: Trenton Baker | Microsoft: Matt McSpirit | ClearPointe: Daniel Weissenborn Recorded: Oct 26 2016 49 mins
    Deep Dive into Fine-Tuning and Best Practices for Managing Storage Spaces Direct (S2D).

    Demand for virtualization and storage continues to advance towards a cloud-consistent Software Defined Data Center (SDDC) architecture and Microsoft is unlocking the value of hyperconvergence with Windows Server 2016 and Storage Spaces Direct (S2D). Prominent architecture advancements to WS2016 Datacenter Edition include an Azure-inspired networking stack, Nano Server and Shielded VMs with storage enhancements; Storage replica, Storage QoS, and Storage Spaces Direct.

    Windows Server 2016 introduces the distributed file system design known as Storage Spaces Direct (S2D), which expands upon Storage Spaces Shared (WS2012 R2) to encompass support for both SATA / SAS drives, including high-performance NVMe flash devices, that reside internally in each server. Recognizing S2D is a vital cog to the Software Defined Data Center, a holistic approach is needed for success from design to implementation to management.

    This presentation is designed to give a perspective on Storage Spaces Direct and its impact on your hyperconvered SDDC environment, with commentary directly from Microsoft, a Microsoft TAP partner ClearPointe and Storage Spaces founding partner RAID Inc. Also see best practice high performance NVMe-tuning techniques as seen demonstrated in the Microsoft Ignite booth. In an effort to further prepare for the future of Cloud storage, tune-in for the discussion addressing how management and monitoring tools can translate directly into a model that scales into Azure Stack, and therefore Azure, to create a harmonious hybrid ecosystem that can scale and work together across on premise and cloud environments.
