Software Defined Storage is transforming the Storage ecosystem through software, by enabling dynamic, policy-driven storage resource management for the Software Defined Data Center
In today’s data centers, big data has placed a greater demand for performance at large scale for storage systems. The Lustre* file system was purpose-built to provide sustained storage performance and stability on a large scale for high-performance computing (HPC) systems. However, as commercial enterprises have begun to deploy HPC technologies, Intel created an enhanced version of Lustre known as Intel® Enterprise Edition for Lustre* software. Enterprise Edition enables fully parallel I/O throughput across clients, servers, and storage devices.
随着越来越多的设备连接到云/互联网，出现了各种不同的源（包括智能手机、平板电脑和物联网设备）生成数据。 存储需求逐年攀升。 英特尔® 至强™ 处理器产品家族和英特尔® 智能存储库（英特尔® ISA-L）的结合为可发人员提供了安全、快速处理数据，甚至降低存储空间需求的工具。
在中国，英特尔与奇虎 360 科技有限公司合作将英特尔 ISA-L 集成至其存储解决方案。 这使得其性能提升了 10 倍，存储空间需求降低了 2/3。 阅读案例研究。
英特尔® ISA-L 可帮助加速和优化任何设备（从小型的办公 NAS 设备到企业级存储系统）上基于英特尔® 架构 (IA) 的存储。 本库中提供的函数可在存储可恢复性、数据完整性、数据安全性提供帮助，并可加速数据压缩机制。 本文从较高的层面对英特尔 ISA-L 的函数进行了概述。
英特尔 ISA-L 在存储应用中使用了以下函数：
With the growing number of devices connected to the Cloud/Internet, data is being generated from many different sources including smartphones, tablets, and Internet of Things devices. The demand for storage is growing every year. The combination of the Intel® Xeon® processor family and the Intel® Intelligent Storage Library (Intel® ISA-L) can provide developers with the tools to process data securely and quickly and even reduce storage space requirements.
Software-Defined Storage (SDS) is a software layer that manages storage infrastructure. Software developers have the flexibility to use a variety of hardware, such as processors, network cards, and hard drives with their storage managing software to develop their own SDS solutions. In this blog, I share some examples of developers using Intel enabling technologies (features of the hardware and/or software) to develop their SDS solutions.
