Optimized Scaling for Standard Ethernet Networks
LightOS software running on industry-standard x86 servers can be loaded with the latest Micron SSDs with NVMe and DRAM to create an optimized, high-performance data node.
Performance can be scaled using multiple data nodes connected to a standard TCP/IP-based Ethernet network to move data for almost any class of application workload.
The result is a consolidated, shared storage platform for your application data that provides near-local storage performance and scales to fit your capacity and performance needs.
Common Use Cases
- Public and Private Cloud Service Providers – Manage virtual machine images and datastores in bare-metal or application environments like OpenStack, with additional virtualization platform support coming soon. Easily replicate your virtual server images and assign them to virtual machines – with no cumbersome and time-consuming copying processes required.
- Software Development Operations (DevOps) – Simply clone your database with LightOS and utilize the clone to apply the necessary changes. Then test and validate. Multi-terabyte databases can be cloned near instantaneously. Databases can be readily cloned for developers seeking a non-disruptive environment to apply, test and validate their changes with minimal storage capacity usage.
- Container Applications – LightOS supports snapshots and clones for persistent volumes via container storage interface (CSI) plugin. If you’re using a Kubernetes environment with containers and persistent volumes, LightOS can provide all the snapshot/clone functionality – with seamless support for microservices – with near-local NVMe storage performance.
