This presentation will show the details of NVMesh, a new generation of software-defined storage specially designed for NVMe and how to combine NVMesh with the HPC cluster file system BeeGFS.
NVMe as a hardware technology has the potential to solve I/O starvation problems and to vastly increase efficiency of today’s most demanding applications, enabling new I/O patterns and new algorithms for applications. However, while adding NVMe drives to a server is easy and increasingly affordable nowadays, sharing NVMe over the network for clustered applications without sacrificing a lot of their performance is often considered a big challenge.
Sven Breuner, the creator of BeeGFS and new Excelero Field CTO will talk about how to master the challenge of sharing NVMe over the network for high performance file access, the different ways to take advantage of NVMe for any budget, what to keep in mind when designing such systems and the resulting performance with a good system design.
