OpenStack Manila file storage users have a reason to celebrate. Red Hat is proud to announce a new performance benchmark that not only reinforces the performance of GlusterFS at scale but also demonstrates how enterprises could significantly lower enterprise storage and energy costs.
The benchmark tests represent the industry's first results of GlusterFS on ultra-dense Cisco UCS C3160 servers with high-speed networking. GlusterFS offers over half a petabyte of usable storage with just four nodes, which makes it is extremely cost effective in storage intensive workloads such as OpenStack Manila. The latest IOzone file system performance benchmark shows how GlusterFS read and write performance scale near linearly when deployed on Cisco UCS 3160 servers.
Performance, portability and scalability are key metrics for OpenStack Manila file share service administrators. These results show how the combination of C3160 Cisco UCS storage servers, high speed networking, and performance enhancements to Gluster software can deliver outstanding performance. Check out this video that outlines how GlusterFS can be used as a storage backend for OpenStack Manila.
Learn more about these benchmark results and the latest innovations in enterprise storage for OpenStack workloads from Red Hat experts at OpenStack Summit in Vancouver this week. We are at booth #104 on level 1. We have a number of breakout and theater sessions lined up on Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, including exciting announcements around deep integration between Red Hat’s PaaS, IaaS, Storage and Cloud Management components. We hope to see you there!
