Data growth is exploding and companies seeing a 60 to 70 percent of data growth every year. This trend likely to continue through the foreseeable future. Most of this data is unstructured data which is massive in scope and growing at a significantly faster rate than structured data. file-based storage method may not scale quickly to meet this demand and that is where object based storage comes in.
NFSv4.1 introduced pNFS which provides parallel data access to multiple classes of data including file-based and object-based storage. As the industry is transitioning, having the flexibility to serve multiple storage classes is a huge advantage. NFS-Ganesha, a user-level NFS server is working towards supporting access to different data classes and making NAS ready for next wave of storage revolution.
In this presentation I plan to introduce NFS-Ganesha and how it is serving Object storeSurvey this Session
