High Performance Storage System (HPSS) is hierarchical file system software designed to store and manage petabytes of data on disk and tape libraries in a network-centered, cluster-based environment.

This presentation outlines how HPSS can be integrated with the Storage Made Easy Enterprise File Share and Sync solution to provider easy access to HPSS data from desktop drives and Sync and Mobile Apps whilst providing strong Audit, Governance and Control of HPSS data.

  16. 16. Storage Made Easy - Briefing Start of Journey • 6 months ago Jaime watched SME in a webinar and became interested in integrating SME with SciNet • How to bridge the gap between a product built for Cloud (SME) and Mature product • Initial setup was challenging, during trial the appliance was behind multiple firewalls • HTTP/S access was through a sequence of ssh tunnels, we had problems with hostnames and outbound access • Web UI was not working because of tunneling and hostnames
  17. 17. Storage Made Easy - Briefing First Attempt HPSS/FTP • Out of box SME provides an FTP connector • HPSS provides a FTP interface • The FTP interface worked with minor changes Problems • Getting the listing was very slow • Had to open a lot of ports • No unified login
  18. 18. Storage Made Easy - Briefing Second Attempt HPSS/API • Looked promising at the start • HPSS provides shell binaries to access HPSS • The API is stable, then HPSS Upgrade!!! • The API binaries are now only supported on CentOS 6.6 and CentOS 7 • SME is based on CentOS 5.11 • To authenticate on the SciNet test environment we had to use keytab files
  19. 19. Storage Made Easy - Briefing Eureka (VFS-Fuse) • HPSS now also supports VFS Fuse • VFS Fuse exposes HPSS as a Virtual File System • VFS Fuse Honors user permissions • SME already has a provider for CIFS • SME writing a Storage Provider to integrate with HPSS using VFS-Fuse
  20. 20. Storage Made Easy - Briefing Eureka (VFS-Fuse) • SME will authenticate a user via LDAP and use the same credentials to access HPSS (Single Sign on) • User’s HPSS data will be immediately available using all the SME tools • Release date: First week of October (for now still over and NFS mount on the appliance)
  21. 21. Storage Made Easy - Briefing Futures • SME will be upgraded to CentOS 7 • VFS FUSE will be supported directly on Appliance • Initial release will be at SciNet and then generally available • Make your HPSS system Cloud aware!
