About this talk
One of the main challenges of a true scale-out system is effectively scaling the metadata to enable practical scale-out without compromising performance. Traditionally, this is solved using a metadata server that becomes a performance bottleneck or by TOKEN sharing between nodes that becomes less effective as the cluster grows. This session will present how WekaIO, a fully software-defined data platform, solves this issue, allowing for effective scale-out to 1000s of servers and increasing performance as more servers are added to the cluster. Furthermore, this unique approach also allows for multiple configurations options from the Supermicro product portfolio.
