Le système NAS en cluster OceanStor N8500 d'Huawei établit une performance record lors d'un test SPEC

SHENZHEN, Chine, 5 novembre 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Huawei, fournisseur mondial de solutions TIC (technologies de l'information et de communication) de pointe, a annoncé aujourd'hui que son système NAS (Network Attached Storage) en cluster OceanStor N8500 a battu un record de performance lors du test SPECsfs2008 réalisé par le groupe SPEC (Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation), en surpassant les points de référence NFS du secteur. C'est la troisième fois qu'Huawei obtient le meilleur résultat d'un essai comparatif réalisé par SPEC, une agence d'évaluation de performances standard. Ce succès vient s'ajouter à ses deux précédents exploits de 2009 et 2011.

OceanStor N8500 est un produit clé de la série OceanStor N8000 de produits NAS évolutifs, destinés aux marchés de haute et moyenne gamme. Ce produit offre la capacité de traitement de fichiers la plus rapide du secteur et remplit de façon excellente les exigences élevées de performance de stockage dans les environnements comportant de grands volumes de données. L'OceanStor N8500 utilise la technologie à nœuds multiples All Active Cluster, avec tous les nœuds de moteur situés dans le même cluster. Cela permet aux nœuds d'effectuer simultanément le traitement des transactions tout en accédant à un fichier unique. De plus, le système OceanStor N8500 prend en charge jusqu'à 256 espaces de noms, chacun d'entre eux étant en mesure de contenir jusqu'à un milliard de fichiers, ce qui représente une capacité de stockage totale d'environ 100 milliards de fichiers. La version la plus récente du système OceanStor N8500 prend en charge jusqu'à 24 nœuds de moteur ; leur capacité évolutive permet une croissance linéaire des performances système. L'OceanStor N8500 doté de 24 nœuds de moteur, qui vient tout juste d'être commercialisé, est à la pointe du secteur grâce à son résultat historique à l'essai comparatif SPECsfs2008, avec une performance globale dépassant les trois millions d'OPS (opérations par seconde) et une performance de nœud unique atteignant 125 000 OPS.

Les résultats de l'essai comparatif SPECsfs2008 suggèrent que s'il opère dans un hôte Linux/UNIX avec protocole NFS activé, le Huawei OceanStor N8500 avec 24 nœuds de moteur peut générer jusqu'à 3 064 602 d'OPS, doublant ainsi la performance du précédent détenteur du record.

Shane Warden, directeur général d'IMG Media House souligne : « Ce qui nous a vraiment impressionnés, c'est la qualité de la technologie associée à l'approche créative des ingénieurs d'Huawei. Nous avons contacté d'autres fournisseurs qui nous ont répondu que ce que nous recherchions n'était pas réalisable. Huawei a réagi différemment et travaillé d'arrache-pied pour comprendre le domaine de l'audiovisuel et trouver une solution répondant à nos besoins ».

Fan Ruiqi, président de la ligne de produits de stockage d'Huawei, remarque : « Nous entrons dans l'ère des grands volumes de données. Face à des systèmes d'entreprise complexes et à des besoins de traitement de quantités massives de données, nous devons proposer un système de stockage plus rapide et plus flexible. OceanStor N8500 est un produit phare des solutions de grands volumes de données offrant hautes performances, évolutivité et disponibilité. Grâce à une architecture de système exceptionnelle, OceanStor N8500 peut ajouter des nœuds de moteur sur la base de processeurs Intel® Xeon® en fonction de l'expansion des activités des clients. Cela augmente d'autant plus nos capacités de traitement des grands volumes de données, tâche compliquée et volatile s'il en est. Nous nous attachons à innover et améliorer sans cesse nos produits et solutions, avec pour objectif de répondre à la demande grandissante de périphériques de stockage haute performance et de grande capacité. Ainsi, nos clients pourront aborder l'ère des grands volumes de données en toute sérénité et en toute confiance ».

À propos du groupe SPEC et de l'essai comparatif SPECsfs2008

Le groupe SPEC® (Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation) est une agence internationale d'évaluation standard des performances d'applications système. L'essai comparatif SPECsfs2008s est le test phare de SPEC ; il concerne les applications de services de fichiers. Ce test mesure le débit et le temps de réponse, fournissant ainsi une méthode d'évaluation standard pour comparer les performances de serveurs de fichiers de différents fournisseurs. À ce jour, les indicateurs de performances d'une vingtaine de fabricants de NAS ont été vérifiés à l'aide de l'essai comparatif SPEC.

SPECsfs2008 mesure le débit et le temps de réponse de serveurs NFS et CIFS en fonction des charges de travail représentant l'activité de serveurs de grande taille dans les environnements réels de clients. En reflétant les indicateurs de performance de logiciels et de plates-formes matérielles, ce test est l'indicateur de choix de clients dans les secteurs des télécoms, de l'audiovisuel, des médias, de l'informatique à haut rendement et de la finance.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
