PoC : HyperScalers JetStore appliance with RAIDiX
1. Executive Summary
The objective of this proof of concept is to create a JetStor appliance using Quanta converged storage server running Raidix software. The appliance should create a high performance storage solution; which should conform to all supported features of Raidix software and IOPs higher than a disaggregated hardware setup. The appliance should be executing in HyperScalers demonstration laboratory. The administrator of appliance should enable the end customer an access to the solution; so that they can launch their appliances on top of it and verify them before going commercial.
Raidix storage software provides a cost effective; cluster-in-a-box solution. It has single management web interface enabling creation and maintenance of RAID partitions with extreme flexibility, data security and integrity features. The appliance executes this storage software on Quanta’s converged box QuantaPlex T21P-4U; which supports E5 CPU with upto 78 SAS 3.5” HDD with 12Gb/s access.
The objective of this appliance is to create a large NAS partition; and execute a video streaming application on various lab environments. The performance numbers of appliance are captured and compared with existing solutions.
