New Developments in Scale-out vs. Scale-up Storage

Cover
Scale-out disk storage systems are built using nodes or modules that, when linked together, act as a single system. They allow companies to start small and grow incrementally, adding nodes as they need them, without having to worry about the limits of a single standalone storage system. They offer the advantage of cost-effective manageability, high availability, and reliability. Predictions are that the new wave of scale-out systems could mount a more serious challenge to traditional scale-up systems, now that major vendors are standing behind them.

Check out this presentation to learn about topics, such as:

  • Distinctions between scale-out and scale-up systems
  • Major use cases
  • Assessment of new scale-out/clustered storage systems from major vendors
