Simplified Namespace Management – The Open Standards Way

Presented by

David Slik, SNIA Cloud Storage Technical Work Group Chair; Michael Hoard, Intel

About this talk

The days of simple, static, self-contained file systems have long passed. Today, we have complex, dynamic namespaces, mixing block, file, object, key-value, queue, and graph-based resources, accessed via multiple protocols, and distributed across multiple systems and geographic sites. These complexities result in new challenges for simplifying management. The good news is, that the SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface (CDMI™), an open ISO standard (ISO/IEC 17826:2022) for managing data objects and containers, already includes extensive capabilities for simplifying the management of complex namespaces. In this webinar, attendees will learn how to simplify namespace management – the open standards way, including namespace discovery, introspection, exports, imports and more, discussing: • Challenges and limitations with proprietary namespace management • Overview of namespaces and industry evolution • Lack of portability between platforms • Using CDMI for simplified and consistent namespace management • Use cases for namespace management
