The Scale-Out File System Architecture Overview

Presented by

Zhiqi Tao, Intel; John Kim, Mellanox

About this talk

This webcast will present an overview of scale-out file system architectures. To meet the increasingly higher demand on both capacity and performance in large cluster computing environments, the storage subsystem has evolved toward a modular and scalable design. The scale-out file system is one implementation of the trend, in addition to scale-out object and block storage solutions. This presentation will provide an introduction to scale-out-file systems and cover: •General principles when architecting a scale-out file system storage solution •Hardware and software design considerations for different workloads •Storage challenges when serving a large number of compute nodes, e.g. name space consistency, distributed locking, data replication, etc. •Use cases for scale-out file systems •Common benchmark and performance analysis approaches After you watch the webcast, check-out the Q&A blog at
