OpenStack Storage and Media & Entertainment

  1. 1. ETC Presentation December, 2013 www.evault.com 1 2012.01.0012_PPT
  2. 2. What Can OpenStack Storage do for Media & Entertainment Cost Private cloud <4¢ / GB/ month Public cloud 1.5-12¢/ GB/ month Scalability 100s Petabyte scale today Short-term target Exabyte scale www.evault.com 2 2012.01.0012_PPT
  3. 3. 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. www.evault.com 3 2012.01.0012_PPT
  4. 4. OpenStack Swift – Cloud Storage • Object storage – http REST APIs • Distributed – Across geographies – Scalable – Masterless • Commodity servers • Durable – Multiple copies – Self healing • Simple to manage • Multi-tenant www.evault.com 4 2012.01.0012_PPT
  5. 5. New Interface & Behavior with Swift… but don’t be Alarmed • Swift is a new type of storage – Eventually consistent behavior – http APIs – 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, R iverbed, Nasuni, Maldivica etc. www.evault.com 5 2012.01.0012_PPT
  6. 6. 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 www.evault.com 6 2012.01.0012_PPT
  7. 7. OpenStack Storage and M&E Swift Cinder Hot Storage Warm Storage Cool Storage Cold Storage www.evault.com HPC-class storage, strict performance SLAs e.g. rendering use-case Tier1 block or file storage e.g. distribution, database usecases, collaboration Dynamic archive, long-tail distribution, micro-clips, footage sharing Dark archive 7 2012.01.0012_PPT
  8. 8. Private Cloud Use-Case • Large organizations – Scale-out more complex than scale-up – Needs skilled IT staff – Needs scale • Swift/ Cinder mutually exclusive – Swift is good for private cloud storage – Cinder goes along with Nova, cloud compute • Companies providing private OpenStack Swift clouds – Rackspace, IBM, CloudScaling, Nebula, Piston, SwiftStack, Mirantis etc. www.evault.com 8 2012.01.0012_PPT
  9. 9. 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 Swift clouds – EVault, RackSpace, IBM, HP, Inter nap etc. www.evault.com 9 2012.01.0012_PPT
