NexentaEdge Architecture

Reference Architecture Designs

  • Scale out, shared nothing architecture deployed on Linux standard x86 servers
  • Fully distributed data and metadata management
  • Multi-petabyte scale with low management overhead
  • Future proof design, ready for emerging storage media such as Key/Value drives, Ethernet drives and Shingled Magnetic Recording drives

Highlights

  • Next-Generation design
  • iSCSI with Cinder support
  • Swift and S3 Object API
  • End to end data integrity protection
  • Cluster wide inline deduplication
  • Fully distributed architecture with no single point of failure
  • Automatic load balancing based on least utilized resources (CPU, network, storage)
  • CLI and Horizon management plug-in
  • Container converged infrastructure, ready for cloud native applications

Benefits

  • Block Cinder, Swift and S3 APIs for OpenStack deployments
  • Next generation scale out design optimizing storage and network utilization
  • Fully distributed architecture eliminating single points of failure or hotspots
  • Minimize CAPEX by running on low cost industry standard servers
  • Minimize OPEX with dynamic self-balancing and self-healing capabilities
  • Reduce VM image storage footprint with cluster-wide inline deduplication

Functionality

  • High performance, low latency, iSCSI Block and Swift and S3 Object services
  • Simple scaling from 100’s of TB to 100’s of PBs
  • Patent pending FlexHash algorithms for continuous data placement optimization
  • Patent pending Replicast protocol for low latency network data transfers
  • Ultimate end to end data integrity with chunk level cryptographic checksums
  • Cloud Copy On Write powered unlimited space optimized snapshots and clones
  • Cluster-wide inline deduplication and compression

Data Protection & Optimizations

  • Cryptographic strength hashing and checksums of all data, with automated self-healing for ultimate data durability and integrity
  • Inline deduplication is performed on all written data across the entire cluster. Variable size chunking ensures maximum capacity savings
  • Object level replication policy control allows the application to set data specific protection levels

High Performance

  • Cloud Copy On Write of all content enables high performance data and metadata management
  • Replicast network protocol optimizes network utilization, minimizes data transfers and delivers faster response times
  • Flexhash dynamically optimizes data placement and data access and automatically ensures effective balancing of performance and capacity loads across the cluster
