Data-Aware Storage: Taming Data Sprawl Using Real-Time Analytics

Can we extract information from the storage array today? Yes, we can. But one has to use a myriad of tools from a variety of vendors and do a lot of heavy lifting to get some meaningful information out of storage.

It's time to shift from data-dumb to data-aware storage

Qumulo Core: Data-Aware Scale-Out NAS Software (Product Profile)

Let's face it: Today’s storage is dumb. Mostly it is a dumping ground for data. As we produce more data we simply buy more storage and fill it up. We don't know who is using what storage at a given point in time, which applications are hogging storage or have gone rogue, what and how much sensitive information is stored, moved or accessed by whom, and so on. Basically, we are blind to whatever is happening inside that storage array. On the other hand, storage should just work, users of storage should see it as an endless invisible resource, while the administrators of storage should be able to unlock the value of data itself through real-time analytical insight, not fighting fires just to keep storage running and provisioned.

Storage systems these days are often quoted in petabytes and will eventually move to exabytes and beyond. Businesses are being crushed under the weight of this data sprawl and a new tsunami of data is coming their way as the Internet of Things fully comes online in the next decade. How are administrators dealing with this ever increasing appetite to store more data? It is time for a radical new approach to building a storage system, one that is aware of the information stored within while dramatically reducing the time administrators spend managing the system.

Welcome to the new era of data aware storage. This could not have come at a better time. Storage growth, as we all know, is out of control. Granted the cost per GB keeps falling at about a 40% per year rate, but we keep growing capacity at about a 60% growth rate. This causes both the cost and capacity to keep increasing every year. While cost increase is certainly an issue, the bigger issue is manageability. And not knowing what we have buried in those mounds of data is a bigger issue. Instead of data being an asset, it is a dead weight that keeps getting heavier. If we didn’t do something about it, we would simply be overwhelmed, if we are not already.

The question we ask is why is it possible to develop data aware storage today when we couldn’t yesterday? The answer is simple: flash technology, virtualization, and the availability of “free” CPU cycles make it possible for us to build storage today that can do a lot of heavy lifting from the inside. While this was possible yesterday, if implemented, it would have slowed down the performance of primary storage to a point where it would be useless. So, in the past, we simply let it store data. But today, we can build in a lot of intelligence without impacting performance or quality of service. We call this new type of storage Data Aware Storage.

When implemented correctly, data aware storage can provide insights that were not possible yesterday. It would reduce risk for non-compliance. It would improve governance. It would automate many of the storage management processes that are manual today. It would provide insights into how well the storage is being utilized. It would identify if a dangerous situation was about to occur, either for compliance or capacity or performance or SLA. You get the point. Storage that is inherently smart and knows: what type of data it has, how it is growing, who is using it, who is abusing it, and so on.

In this profile, we dive deep into a new technology, called Qumulo Core, the industry’s first data-aware scale-out NAS platform. Qumulo Core promises to radically change the scale-out NAS product category by using built-in data awareness to massively scale a distributed file system, while at the same time radically reducing the time to administer a system than can hold billions of files. File systems in the past could not scale to this level because administrative tools would crush under the weight of the system.

How to store 10 BILLION files

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 30-minute webinar in which the Taneja Group will talk with David Bailey about how he was able to store over 10 billion files. We will discuss with David how he was able to design a 10 Billion file storage system, who is using systems of this size, how he tracks the analytics for a system this large and what this means for the datacenter. David works for Qumulo, a leader in “data-aware” storage systems. Data-aware systems have real-time analytics that enable users to instantly obtain information about data and how it is being used. Attendees will be encouraged to submit their questions during the session.

Innovations in Storage – Data-Aware Storage Unveiled

Join us for a fast-paced and informative 60-minute roundtable as we discuss one of the newest trends in storage: Data-Aware Storage. Let’s face it, storage has been dumb for long enough and it is time to innovate in another dimension. Recently several “up-and-coming” storage companies have taken off the wraps of data-awareness by providing storage systems that can analyze, index, comply and make storage much smarter while operating in real-time without compromising the mission of providing primary storage capability. We will unpack the definition of data-aware storage and as a panel of experts will give their take on how data-aware storage products has have impacted customer business outcomes.
We will ask them questions such as: Why is the time ripe now for data-aware storage? What will the future bring in this space? What are the best applications and use cases to start implementing data-aware storage today?

Qumulo Tackles the Machine Data Challenge: Six Customers Explain How

We are moving into a new era of data storage. The traditional storage infrastructure that we know (and do not necessarily love) was designed to process and store input from human beings. People input emails, word processing documents and spreadsheets. They created databases and recorded business transactions. Data was stored on tape, workstation hard drives, and over the LAN.

In the second stage of data storage development, humans still produced most content but there was more and more of it, and file sizes got larger and larger. Video and audio, digital imaging, websites streaming entertainment content to millions of users; and no end to data growth. Storage capacity grew to encompass large data volumes and flash became more common in hybrid and all-flash storage systems.

Today, the storage environment has undergone another major change. The major content producers are no longer people, but machines. Storing and processing machine data offers tremendous opportunities: Seismic and weather sensors that may lead to meaningful disaster warnings. Social network diagnostics that display hard evidence of terrorist activity. Connected cars that could slash automotive fatalities. Research breakthroughs around the human brain thanks to advances in microscopy.

However, building storage systems that can store raw machine data and process it is not for the faint of heart. The best solution today is massively scale-out, general purpose NAS. This type of storage system has a single namespace capable of storing billions of differently sized files, linearly scales performance and capacity, and offers data-awareness and real-time analytics using extended metadata.

There are a very few vendors in the world today who offer this solution. One of them is Qumulo. Qumulo’s mission is to provide high volume storage to business and scientific environments that produce massive volumes of machine data.

To gauge how well Qumulo works in the real world of big data, we spoke with six customers from life sciences, media and entertainment, telco/cable/satellite, higher education and the automotive industries. Each customer deals with massive machine-generated data and uses Qumulo to store, manage, and curate mission-critical data volumes 24x7. Customers cited five major benefits to Qumulo: massive scalability, high performance, data-awareness and analytics, extreme reliability, and top-flight customer support.

Read on to see how Qumulo supports large-scale data storage and processing in these mission-critical, intensive machine data environments.
