Two Tiers Scalable Storage: Building POSIX-Like Namespaces with Object Stores

SESSION: Two Tiers Scalable Storage: Building POSIX-Like Namespaces with Object Stores

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

EVENT TAG(S): Storage

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Sorin Faibish, Gary A. Grider, John Bent

ROOM:Hilton Salon A


Storage has seen a somewhat circular evolution over the past decade. Lack of scalability for POSIX namespaces led to flat namespace object stores. New concerns however are emerging: the lack of hierarchical namespace, to which we're accustomed, is a hindrance to widespread object store acceptance. Emerging systems are now accessing a POSIX-like namespace layered above an object store. Have we returned to our starting point or have we made actual progress? This BOF presents talks about this trend, discussion of two exemplar systems (LANL and EMC) and their pitfalls, their relationship to burst buffers, and a panel discussion.
