In this presentation, Skip Levens from Quantum describes the company StorNext5 family of Appliances and Quantum Lattus Object Storage for Big Data management.

"For customers who need to retain and access hundreds of terabytes of unstructured data, Quantum Lattus Object Storage is a self-healing, self-protecting private cloud solution that enables more efficient primary storage usage, delivers extreme archive data resiliency and protection, and offers low latency disk access to archive data. Compared to RAID or tape storage, Lattus Object Storage provides the most effective solution on a cost/performance basis for active access, retention and protection of unstructured data in large archive environments."

Introducing StorNext 5 Appliances

Modern Workflows Have Changed Operations Video, Image and Sensor data paths are 100% digital Deliver Globally distributed teams require shared access Various sized unstructured data files are managed Topologies and interconnects have evolved

StorNext 5 Appliances A New Era for Digital Workflows  Built from the Ground Up for – Performance – Scalability – Flexibility

Engineered from the Ground up   Next Generation Technology A New Modern Core – New cache management – Multiprocessor aware with lower CPU utilization – More compact on-disk format – New reporting/management framework

5x Greater Scalability  Up to 5 Billion Files – Metadata scalable to petabytes – Designed for large block allocation space – No slowdown as FS grows and ages

10x Faster Performance*  Across the Board Performance Improvements – All files sizes improve – File creates and deletes up to 10x faster – Small file performance greatly increased up to 100% – Takes full advantage of SSD Flash and multi-core processors * Performance measured in standardized testing against StorNext v4.2 file create and delete performance, real-world application performance may vary

Beyond the SAN IP/NAS + SAN and beyond  Topology Agnostic – Fibre Channel, IP/NAS and beyond - all highly optimized with new cache parameters and better system tuning – All operating systems enjoy better performance and lower latency – Takes advantage of InfiniBand for lower latency applications such as HPC

Optimized for StorNext Q-Series and Lattus Object Storage  Improved Affinities Provide Better Disk Performance – Automated tuning and reduced parameters, now self-tuned for Quantum disk – Buffer cache I/O improvements and smaller block allocation improve performance on Petabyte-scale Lattus Object Storage

Native LTFS Capability  Choice of LTO Tape Format  LTFS format – – – – –  Meets LTFS standards Non-proprietary format Content delivery Collaboration Long-term vaulting Quantum ANTF format – Higher read and write performance – Single file can span multiple tapes

Architected for the Long-Term  Redesigned To Boost Efficiency and Performance – RAM, CPU cache, controller and disk IO all important in FS performance – Shrinking metadata makes all these more effective – Fit more in RAM and cache – Move more with bandwidth – Maintain consistent performance over time – Seamless, non-disruptive software updates

Flash & InfiniBand Optimized  Takes Full Advantage of SSD and Flash for Performance – Low latency and high I/O applications benefit most – Improves HPC and analytic operations – Improves small file performance – Support for InfiniBand

Engineered from the Ground up 5x Greater Scalability 10x Faster Performance* Beyond the SAN IP/NAS + SAN and beyond Optimized for StorNext Q-Series and Lattus Object Storage Native LTFS Capability Architected for the Long-Term Flash & InfiniBand Optimized

Data Challenges Converge on Your Business 19

Data Value Drives Changes to Workflows Traditional Infrastructure New Infrastructure Never-Ending Disk Pools Fast Cache Cache for immediate work Smart Data Movement Support unpredictable, on-demand access Legacy Backup & Archive Vault 20 Policy-based, native, unlimited scalability, low TCO

Petabyte Scale Challenges Traditional Architecture Efficiency Traditional RAID is inefficient at Petabyte Scale 88% 75% Percentage usable 66% 100TB 1PB 10PB 10 Disk RAID* Time (days) RAID suffers from unacceptable rebuild times as drive size increases 3 2 1 1TB 21 3TB 4TB *2013 Evaluator Group, Inc.

Traditional Storage Approaches Reduce Data Usage Efficiency Traditional block addressing cannot match scale, access or durability needs Traditional file hierarchies inhibit required global access flexibility 22

Next-Generation Object Storage Matches Modern Data Usage Objectives Unlimited Scalability Independent of physical location Flexible Data Usage No hierarchy – 100% flat namespace Long-Term Online Durability Forward Error Correction (FEC) for data integrity Efficiency allows multiple copies of encoded data distributed across storage nodes Global Data Access Distributed data leveraging global networks 23

Object Storage Provides Immediate Value Cost-Effective Global Data Availability Rapid Access to Historical Data Infinite Scalability & Data Durability 24 Transparent Cloud Migration Big Data Analysis Enabled Content Re-Monetization Made Easy

Lattus-M Object Storage Disk Archive Forever disk archive StorNext-managed policy-based tiering Leverages next-generation object storage Lower latency than tape More efficient than mirrored RAID Includes Storage Manager license 1 Billion Files (per MDC) Archive starts at 200 TB Virtually unlimited scalability
