Big Data requires storage that not only scales but is flexible enough to handle a wide range of workloads ranging from real-time data processing and analytics to content delivery, media archiving and “cold” data storage.
With the ability to scale to 100PB, QuantaStor is an ideal solution for big data workloads. The challenges of big data are three-fold: data volume, data velocity, and data type variety.
QuantaStor Big Data Features
Flexible Storage Pool Architecture
QuantaStor's flexible storage pool architecture supports the use of two underlying pool types to accommodate varying data velocity and throughput scenarios. Scale-up clusters utilize ZFS technology which is the most versatile and is ideal for IOPS intensive and general workloads. Scale-out clusters utilize Ceph technology which is ideal for applications requiring S3 object storage.
