Deploy Highly Available and Scalable Storage in Minutes


Published on

RightScale Webinar: April 6, 2011 - In this webinar, we discuss how Gluster can help you deploy highly available, scalable storage in minutes and manage data growth in a single global namespace in the cloud. Take advantage of Gluster's software-only network-attached storage (NAS) solution to dynamically deploy and manage cloud storage in the RightScale Cloud Management Platform.

  • We’re adding an additional instance ot he cluster yes?About how long will it take to be fully available?How do I access my new storage?Can you explain what the GLusterFS protocol is?How would I be able to spread data across availability zones without gluster?You’re adding a lot of EBS volumes, does that cost more from amazon?What protocol do you use to mount by default?

    22. 22. Storage Challenges in AWS <br />Without Gluster Highly Available POSIX storage is impossible<br />Redundant NFS is not possible within EC2<br />NAS performance is limited to the speed of a single instance<br />80MB/s maximum throughput for a single EC2 instance<br />Larger more expensive EC2 instances are required to reach 80MB/s<br />Performance within AWS is unpredictable<br />Resources within EC2 speed up and slow down<br />Performance on EBS volumes can vary up to 70% from the mean hour to hour<br />NAS Is difficult to scale <br />An instance is limited to ~120TB of storage <br />S3 requires application rewrites to leverage object storage<br />S3 is incredibly slow (~15MB/s)<br />EC2<br />EC2<br />EBS<br />
    23. 23. Enter Gluster – RightScale Server Template<br />We are the ONLY way to implement a highly available file system in Amazon. <br />We limit the performance vagaries of Amazon virtual machines and storage. <br />There is NO limit to the speed of a Gluster cluster, regardless of file size, block size, etc.<br />There is NO limit to the number of files in a Gluster cluster, regardless of file size, block size, etc.<br />Gluster is designed to work across availability zones and with S3 snapshots for genuine HA storage.<br />From concept to production in 30 minutes.<br />2 hour support SLA. Guaranteed. <br />
    24. 24. When to use Gluster<br />Unstructured Data<br />Video Files<br />Audio Files<br />Pictures<br />General Office documents<br />Web content<br />Emails (Zimbra, Sendmail, etc.)<br />When not to use Gluster<br />Databases (MySQL, Oracle, Postgres, etc.)<br />Structured Files<br />Data where on-disk block order matters<br />
    25. 25. Scaling performance<br />The total speed of the cluster is the aggregated speed of every instance.<br />Single file performance is limited to the instances(s) on which the file exists.<br />Gluster has been benchmarked in Amazon @ 5300MB/sec aggregated throughput.<br />Single file performance is limited to ~80MB/sec.<br />
