Historically most high performance compute (HPC) environments have deployed distributed file system appliances from vendors such as EMC and NetApp with expensive backup and DR solutions to support their pre and post process workloads; while these were the most appropriate solutions at the time, the market and technology has moved on since then.
Data volumes are growing and the ability to drive more value through our data is growing with it. The result is an infrastructure that is struggling to cope with increased scale and performance demands.
Some technology vendors have tried to help solve this problem with integrated tiering into their products to stem the tide, but this doesn’t really work with high speed use cases as the time to retrieve data from slower storage tiers becomes the bottleneck. Aside from performance challenges, the distributed nature of more traditional infrastructure delivery models, makes it costly and complex to manage your data at scale.
Nephos has looked to overcome these challenges by offering a scale out high performance file system with a global namespace and integrated into an S3 based capacity storage, as well as incorporating the ability to burst to cloud as needed within the same namespace. This means that:
