OpenStack 101 Presentation


Published on

Are you overwhelmed by storage capacity requirements? Are you wondering how web giants are able to store large amounts of data at a fraction of your storage costs?

OpenStack is the fastest growing open-source project to date, and its community builds cloud software. Join us to learn about the two OpenStack storage projects and how your company can take advantage of them.

OpenStack storage allows the use of commodity hardware at massive scales that you can consume as a public, private, or hybrid cloud.

View the on-demand webinar. Special guest speaker Randy Bias, founder and CEO of Cloudscaling and member of the Board of Directors for OpenStack Foundation, and EVault big data expert Joey Yep will inform you about this fast-growing, open-source project: OpenStack.

• OpenStack Swift and Cinder storage projects
• High-level functionality and architecture
• Public, private, and hybrid use-cases

  11. 11. What Can OpenStack Storage Do For You? Cost Private cloud <4¢ / GB/ month Public cloud 1.5-12¢/ GB/ month Scalability 100s Petabyte scale today Short-term target Exabyte scale 11 Cloud Storage Services
  12. 12. OpenStack Storage Overview Swift Highly available, distributed, eventually consistent object storage. Uses commodity servers. Cinder Block storage interface layer for cloud compute. Standardizes the use of traditional block storage. 12 Cloud Storage Services
  13. 13. OpenStack Swift – Cloud Storage Object storage • HTTP REST APIs Distributed • Across geographies • Linearly Scalable • Masterless Commodity servers Durable • Multiple copies • Self healing Simple to manage Multi-tenant 13 Cloud Storage Services
  14. 14. New Interface & Behavior with Swift… but don’t be Alarmed Swift is a new type of storage • Eventually consistent behavior • HTTP – PUT, GET, POST, DELETE • Requires application change …but don’t be alarmed • Cloud gateways to convert file or block protocol to REST • Allow existing applications to use the cloud • Additional features e.g. caching, WAN op, encryption, dedupe etc. • TwinStrata, Panzura, Maginatics, Riverbed, Nasuni, Maldivica etc. 14 Cloud Storage Services
  15. 15. OpenStack Cinder – Storage for Cloud Block storage interface • Integrate traditional block storage with OpenStack compute “Nova” Integrated with Nova and dashboard • Supports Linux storage, Ceph, NetApp, Nexenta, SolidFire, Zadara, gluster, IBM Performance optimized Advanced capabilities • Snapshot capability • Highly available, • Fault-tolerant, recoverable 15 Cloud Storage Services
  16. 16. OpenStack Storage Swift Cinder Hot Storage Warm Storage Tier1 block or file storage e.g. distribution, database usecases Dynamic archive e.g. long-tail distribution, local backup Cool Storage Cold Storage 16 HPC-class storage, strict performance SLAs e.g. data analysis use-case Dark archive; e.g., Compliance Retention Cloud Storage Services
  17. 17. Private Cloud Use-Case Large organizations • Scale-out more complex than scale-up • Needs skilled IT staff • Needs scale Swift and Cinder in private clouds • Swift is a good choice for private cloud storage • Cinder goes along with Nova, cloud compute Companies providing private OpenStack clouds • Rackspace, IBM, Cloudscaling, Nebula, Piston, SwiftStack, Mirantis etc. 17 Cloud Storage Services
  18. 18. Public Cloud Use-Case Any size organization • • • • • Eliminates capital expenditures Eliminates capacity planning Eliminates technology migration Eliminates management of equipment Can complement a private cloud Companies providing public OpenStack clouds • EVault, Rackspace, IBM, HP, Internap etc. 18 Cloud Storage Services
  19. 19. Additional Resources Overview • Swift • • • Cinder • • 19 Cloud Storage Services
