The THREE Pillars of High Availability Storage
Event Date: January 28, 2014
Join us for this eSeminar to hear from Roland Dreier, a distinguished software engineer currently working on Pure Storage's FlashArray architecture; designed for the highest performance even through multiple failures.
In this eSeminar you will learn the three pillars of high availability for storage. We will discuss:
InfiniBand-Connected Controllers: linked via 56 Gb/sec InfiniBand, the FlashArray's clustered active-active controllers give full performance over all paths, even after the complete failure of a controller.
Stateless Controller Architecture: simply unplug a failed controller, cable up a new one, and the FlashArray is back to full-availability, all without any application downtime.
Non-Disruptive (ND) Everything: when a storage array hosts hundreds of applications, there is no such thing as an outage window.
