30 Jan 2017 Red Hat Assists Monash University with Deployment of Software-Defined Storage to Support Advanced Research Capabilities [60298]
Leading science and technology research institution selects Red Hat Ceph Storage to support five-petabyte storage cluster

Red Hat announced that Monash University, one of Australia's most prestigious research universities, has implemented a massive multi-petabyte deployment on Red Hat Ceph Storage.

Founded in 1958, Monash University was established to create a science and technology-focused research institution. Almost 60 years later, Monash is Australia's largest university, and now includes a curriculum that spans multiple disciplines and across five international campuses. The University's eResearch Centre fosters international collaboration and advanced research of both fundamental and applied sciences, with an emphasis on imaging and data science. Eventually, the critical need to manage a continually growing pool of research data collided with the prohibitively huge investment presented by its previously deployed proprietary hardware solutions, leaving the University at a crossroads.

Monash University selected Red Hat to implement a software-defined solution using Red Hat Ceph Storage on Dell EMC PowerEdge R630 and R730xd rack servers that can accelerate application performance, simplify systems management and address workloads at any level. Using Red Hat Ceph Storage as an object store, Monash projects that its software-defined storage solution will significantly reduce costs and give researchers the freedom to independently and incrementally add capacity and performance for future growth.

16 Apr 2015 Solaris Swift All In One [41994]
Set up a Swift storage service on single standalone Solaris OS useful for development

Jim Kremer writes, "I'm going to talk about my favorite Swift which is an object store that is part of OpenStack.

What I'll show is how I set up a Swift storage service on single standalone Solaris OS useful for development. There is already OpenStack Swift documentation that shows how to do this for many OSes but Solaris documentation is missing. The Swift instance will store all of its data in a single ZFS filesystem. Redundancy is assumed to be supplied by the ZFS filesystem so this example only requires one copy for all Swift data objects.

One advantage of storing data on ZFS is that you will get all the ZFS features including compression, encryption, snapshots and clones..."

05 Jul 2011 Lustre Is the Logical File System for Exascale [24315]
Maturity, Stability, Object Store-based: Much of the Work Is Already Done

The clock is running on the goal to stage an exascale technology demonstration capable of handling a peak of 400 petaflops by 2015. This is more data than a single stream can deliver, so the search is on in the HPC community for a solution to these I/O demands. The hardware approach, writes Brent Gorda, Whamcloud CEO and President, in his HPCWire article "Why Lustre Is Set to Excel in Exascale," -- boosting performance on the single unit and going widely parallel -- will work until power limitations and parallelism issues become an impediment. Gorda enthusiastically nominates the Lustre file system to fill the software side of the equation. Lustre, he continues, based on an object store, has the necessary fundamental architecture for exascale, which the HPC file system technologists think will be based on an object store approach. It might work, Gorda continues, to introduce new file types to Lustre that will provide exascale object storage semantics internally. While this will require development of the underlying object model, Gorda points out that it holds the promise that the same file system will be able to support the full range of applications from (legacy) POSIX through to exascale. Finally, under development since 1999, Lustre has the maturity and stability that developers seek as the starting point for rapid and diverse development, Gorda concludes.

17 May 2010 "Deploying Web 2.0 Applications on Oracle Servers and the OpenSolaris Operating System" [23132]
Demo Uses Olio Toolkit to Simulate Workloads

Oracle created Olio as a solution to provide a realistic workload for the assessment the performance and scalability of Web 2.0 technologies in response to the demands placed on the web by the phenomenal growth in social networking users. The Oracle white paper "Deploying Web 2.0 Applications on Oracle Servers and the OpenSolaris Operating System" by Shanti Subramanyam, Richard Smith, Paul van den Bogaard, and Adam Zhang describes a reasonably sized, scalable Web 2.0 deployment that was validated and tuned with Olio, resulting in several best practices for deployment.
