Faster Storage Requires a Faster Flexible Storage File System: AVFS
AVFS as a HA SAN file system integrates storage arrays under the hood of a single file system. It offers file sharing with parallel access and file based caching and tiering to maximise storage efficiency and costs. It can manage storage arrays connected with Ethernet, RoCE, FC, InfiniBand and combinations of these.
Data storage is undergoing a speed revolution. Flash media and faster interfaces like NVME are overwhelming traditional Fibrechannel and Ethernet Networks. Faster servers, analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), deep learning, machine learning, health care / life science / genomics, M and E, gaming workloads demand extreme performance per client of 20 GB/s bandwidth and latency as low as 1µsec.
HPC customers are more and more deploying hyper converged infrastructure (HCI), software-defined storage (SDS) and NVME over Fabrics (NVME-oF).
State of the art building blocks for this type of storage arrays can come from such companies as Nvidia/Mellanox, Excelero/NVMesh, Pavilion and others.
Within the single file system AVFS these arrays can be combined with more economical standard ethernet based storage arrays using for example iSCSI.
