In this benchmarking report, you can see the results of testing for Caringo Swarm object storage on a multi-Terabit converged Ethernet Software-Defined Storage Super Data Cluster deployed by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council’s (STFC) for the JASMIN project. The JASMIN facility is a “super-data-cluster” that delivers infrastructure for data analysis. Due to increasing capacity needs, a growing researcher base and a shift in access from traditional file protocols to RESTful interfaces, the infrastructure managers at STFC’s Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) started looking for methods to streamline infrastructure management, tenant management, access controls, and private and public file sharing. Their research led them to search for an object storage solution with read performance characteristics similar to existing parallel file systems.
Download this whitepaper to get an overview the performance requirements defined by STFC and learn how Caringo Swarm exceeded those requirements, leading the RAL team to choose it over numerous other object storage products.
