When deploying virtualized infrastructure, storage planning is always a pain point. People often have two choices . Either, buy an expensive central storage (SAN/NAS) storage device. However, with the growth of the data and virtualization infrastructure, the central storage device soon becomes the I/O bottleneck. Or, store data locally, but with the danger of losing data.
ZBS is a scale out distributed block storage system for virtual computing platforms. It has no single point of failure and can scale with your business growth. It is highly optimized for virtualization workload by using aggressive cache strategy and SSD/SATA tiered storage. In this presentation, I will show you how ZBS works and how to build a converged infrastructure with ZBS and Openstack.
