StoneFly SSO

StoneFly SSO™ “Super Scale Out” NAS Storage Appliances deliver unprecedented performance, redundancy and scalability. SSO series of appliances were designed for customers requiring a powerful storage solution that can scale out storage capacity while scaling up performance.

Dynamic Network Factory’s Falcon and VME video viewing, storage and management appliances are easily combined with StoneFly Super Scale Out NAS appliances to create the ultimate in scalability and performance.

StoneFly SSO™ “Super Scale Out” NAS Storage Appliances deliver unprecedented performance, redundancy and scalability. SSO series of appliances were designed for customers requiring a powerful storage solution that can scale out storage capacity while scaling up performance. SSO Super Scale Out NAS nodes scale up to 36 drives and 288 TeraBytes of storage per chassis, up to 256 drives per node, and easily scale out to multiple nodes on demand. Perfect for managing large quantities of unstructured (file-based) data within a single global namespace and a single file system. SSO was designed for markets that require vast quantities of high bandwidth throughput or fast parallel throughput for very large files required by high performance computing in media and entertainment.

The Scale Out NAS feature of the SSO allows you to “scale out” as your business grows by adding nodes without losing performance. With the SSO you can expand one or more volumes across multiple nodes using no metadata and a single namespace. Usable bandwidth increases as new nodes are added. Best of all, you can manage multiple nodes with just a single user interface. Each time the SSO is scaled out, it adds more capacity, more throughput, and more concurrency. Installation, management and scaling is simple to achieve at any size.

Content creation, transformation, production and archive, as well as unstructured data (documents, presentations, pictures, music and video files) are best stored in large Scale Out NAS appliances like the StoneFly SSO. SSO allows you to add server nodes on the fly as well as add CPU horsepower and storage capacity from additional SSO nodes. This linear scalability provides predictable performance and allows users to pay as you grow and to only buy what you need. SSO simplifies the storage of media and is the ideal platform for consolidation onto a shared resource implementing higher utilization.

SSO is often used for ultra fast primary storage for visual effects and high IO-intensive media production applications that require high-concurrent sequential throughput, post-production transcode and streaming media. It drives down the overall cost of storage while increasing performance for applications that need it when they need it, and reduces costs and floor space requirements. Capacity can be quickly provisioned, shared, and managed with fewer resources. StoneFly SSO is efficient to operate since it leverages all of its resources, maximizes utilization, and integrates nearline SAS, enterprise SAS, and SSD tiering within the storage nodes.

What is Scale Out NAS?

Scale Out NAS is a distributed file system that can scale to several petabytes all while handling thousands of clients. It functions as a distributed data overlay, polling together storage building blocks over TCP/IP, aggregating disk resources and managing data in a single global namespace. The unified platform handles blocks, files, objects and big data.

 

Scale Out NAS solves enterprise storage requirements, including:

  • Enterprise-wide file sharing with a single access point across data storage locations.
  • Nearline storage for infrequently accessed data that needs to be online.
  • Rich media (audio and video) content distribution with petabyte-scale storage and high-read performance requirements.
  • High-performance storage for bandwidth-intensive applications like weather prediction and oil and gas exploration.
  • Centralized storage-as-a-service to enterprise applications.
  • Backup target and archive for on-site or off-site data protection.

 

OpenStack Compatibility

Global Scale Out Storage for OpenStack – Cinder, Swift, Glance

StoneFly’s SSO “Super Scale Out” NAS Storage Appliances fully support OpenStack. StoneFly NAS can be used as global scale out storage for OpenStack Block or Volume Storage (Cinder), OpenStack Container or Object Storage (Swift), as well as storage for the OpenStack Image service (Glance).

StoneFly SSO can be used for a single type of OpenStack storage (e.g. Cinder), or it can be used for any combination of Cinder, Swift and Glance. This is in addition to using the StoneFly SSO’s Scale Out NAS storage for your regular physical and virtual servers or workstations.

A common limitation when using Cinder is that although volumes can be added to increase storage, those volumes cannot be expanded. With StoneFly Scale Out NAS, volumes for Cinder Block Storage can easily be expanded by adding either bricks (drives) or additional Scale Out NAS nodes. Since volumes can be easily expanded across multiple SSO Scale Out NAS appliance nodes, the volume for OpenStack will expand readily and expansion is nearly limitless.

Key advantages of using StoneFly SSO for OpenStack shared storage:

  • Cost-effective alternative to using local storage.
  • Increased reliability since all StoneFly Scale Out NAS nodes feature hardware RAID, redundant hot-swappable power supply modules, and you do not lose access to your data if a compute node goes down (in OpenStack environments running multiple compute nodes).
  • Makes it possible to share storage for other purposes beyond OpenStack (NAS storage for regular physical and virtual servers in your datacenter).
  • Ability to scale/expand and increase the performance of a particular volume since you are not limited by the number of disks in a single physical machine.
  • Management and recovery of compute nodes running Nova is much easier because you do not have to maintain their state. Since storage is not tied to another node, compute nodes can just be restarted as a new instance.
