OpenStack Object Storage at Intel Developers Forum
OpenStack Object Storage (code name Swift) could be the most representative storage workload for new data center and cloud service provider architectures. Intel agrees, which is why OpenStack Swift is being used this week at the Intel Developers Forum in San Francisco to showcase the scale-out workload capabilities of the new Intel® Atom™ C2000 product family (code named “Avoton”).
With OpenStack Object Storage, the proxy services which route incoming requests to store or read data and the storage services that store the actual data are commonly run on different nodes, specifically tuned for those workloads. Leveraging the C2000 product family, new all-in-one nodes for storage workloads are possible.
At IDF13, Intel chose to run OpenStack Swift for an all-in-one 12-drive, 1U storage node (code named Canyon Run) demo in the Intel booth #835, and is also using Swift workloads as part of a Rack Scale Architecture demonstration in Intel booth #822.
Intel Engineers are leading a session “How Intel® Technology Can Unlock Capacity Storage Solutions in the Cloud” today, as well as a session on the future “OpenStack* Swift Erasure Codes: A Smart Cloud Storage Solution”.
Intel is one of the companies in the community working on Erasure Codes, for more information check out the joint announcement. Thanks!
