    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, sate llite 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
    10. 10. Scality’s Storage VisionTheir DC Their DC YOUR DCTheir App. YOUR App. YOUR App.YOUR Data YOUR Data YOUR Data Slide 10
    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
