This is the full presentation I did with Ranajit Nevatia from Panzura (@ranajitN) at Cloud Computing Expo NY in June 2012.
It introduces and explains the concepts of Structured and Unstructured data and why Object Storage will prevail when it comes to the latter.

Panzura & Scality - Cloud Storage made seamless - Cloud Expo New York City 2012

  1. 1. Cloud Storage Made SeamlessMarc Villemade Ranajit NevatiaTechnology Evangelist VP, MarketingScality Panzura Slide 1
  2. 2. There are two types of data(roughly) ! Structured ! We (sort of) know how to manage this ! Unstructured ! This is the new beast we have issues with Slide 2
  3. 3. How to define Structured Data?!  Structured data is a set of organized pieces of data !  Relational databases are a perfect example !  Atomic pieces are, on their own, meaningless Slide 3
  4. 4. What about Unstructured Data?!  Unstructured data is self-contained pieces of data !  Self-descriptive !  Meaningful in and of itself !  Typically has metadata attached to it!  Email, Videos, Presentations, Spreadsheets, satellite images…!  An easy way to think about it is anything that can be stored in one file is unstructured data Slide 4
  5. 5. Some numbers…!  In 2012, Humanity will generate 2.7 ZB of data 1!  It is estimated that we permanently store ~ 1 ZB of it 2 (~40%)!  80% of it is unstructured 1 !  500 Quadrillion files (500,000 million million files)!  Next year and so on, it will grow by 50% y-o-y 1 !  It will double every 2 years in the next 10 years Kind of unfathomable, ain’t it?(1) IDC numbers – (2) University of Southern California (2007) Slide 5
  6. 6. Humans like organized things Well, some of them at least…!  Structured storage systems have been used for Unstructured Data !  Organized in file systems, hierarchies, directories !  Easier for us!  And then new data creation patterns emerged early 2000s !  The model doesn’t fit anymore !  And here’s why Slide 6
  7. 7. Typical SAN / NAS issues at Scale !  Technology refresh and migration necessary to benefit from larger disks !  Scheduled maintenance window nuisance !  Limitations on # of files !  Volume management is complex !  Serial architecture compromises performance !  RAID is less efficient for large drives !  FC networks are expensive & point-to-point !  Cost is prohibitive for large capacity Slide 7
  8. 8. Humans like organized things Well, some of them at least…!  Structured data storage systems are used for Unstructured. !  Organized in file systems, hierarchies, directories !  Easier for us!  And then new data creation patterns emerged early 2000s !  The model doesn’t fit anymore !  SANs and NASes were not made to handle this Slide 8
  9. 9. So what’s the solution?!  We believe it’s Object Storage !  Yahoo!, Amazon, Google.. were the pioneers!  Main Characteristics !  Flat Namespace !  Infinite Scalability !  Elasticity !  Cost-efficiency !  Data availability and durability Slide 9

  11. 11. What is the Secret Sauce?Scality has developed a distributed (scale–out) object-basedstorage software to turn x86 servers into Petabyte scalestorage for unstructured data (files).(Scality is NOT designed for VM, VDI, Relational Database) •  Distributed System •  Distributed metadata •  No Single point of failure •  Self healing •  Organic upgrades Slide 11
  12. 12. What’s unique about Scality RING•  Performance •  ESG Lab report: we’re 10x faster than any other object store•  Hardware-agnostic •  Software Vendor •  Mixed hardware (disks, nodes)•  Erasure-Coding with No penalty on read •  With only 60% overhead•  Tiering •  Policy driven •  Automatic, Transparent Slide 12
