Scalable Storage With Ethernet Disk Drives - Kinetic On the Move - Erik Riedel, EMC

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This talk will outline use of Kinetic ethernet disk drive technology to build a petabyte-scale object storage system. The Kinetic Open Storage Project has incubated a set of hardware products and software interfaces to allow individual disk drives to be directly connected to general-purpose ethernet networking (instead of being hidden behind SAS/SATA or FC busses) and to be access via a key-value API (instead of traditional LBA access). The talk will overview experiences with a cluster of over 500 ethernet drives interconnected into a single cluster and operating as a single large-scale storage system. We will discuss the physical design, logical software structures, API benefits and limitations, manageability, and performance of this solution in comparison to traditional systems.
