New Orleans, LA – July 25th, 2016: Permabit Technology Corporation the open source data reduction experts, and LINBIT, the market leader in open source High Availability (HA) Clustering and Geo-Clustering software, announced a partnership today at HostingCon 2016. Together, Permabit’s VDO data reduction for Linux® and LINBIT’s DRBD® software, allow enterprises to replicate data in a […]
TL;DR: Pairing DRBD with VDO reduces the replication network and storage utilization by ~85% while increasing load by ~0.8. VDO (Virtual Data Optimizer) is a ready-to-run software package that delivers block-level deduplication, compression, and thin provisioning capabilities to Linux. VDO operates inline at a 4 KB granularity, delivering the best possible balance of performance and […]
As promised in the previous RDMA post, we gathered some performance data for the RDMA transport. Read and enjoy!
This week we continue our SSD testing series with the SanDisk Optimus Ascend 2.5 800GB SAS drives. Background: SanDisk Corporation designs, develops and manufactures flash memory storage solutions. LINBIT is known for developing DRBD (Distributed Replicated Block Device), the backbone of Linux High Availability software. LINBIT tested how quickly data can be synchronously replicated from […]
Over the next few weeks we’ll be posting results from tests that we’ve run against various manufactures SSD drives; including Intel, SanDisk, and Micron, to name a few. The first post in this series goes over our findings of the Intel DC S 3700 Series 800GB SATA SSD drives.
