Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO:6502) today announced that it will demonstrate key value-based object storage technology at the OpenStack Summit 2015 in Vancouver, Canada, May 18-22, 2015.
Data storage demand is expanding dramatically. Data centers are now finding it difficult to predict how large a storage capacity they need, so storage systems offering flexibility and extendibility are required. In typical systems, storage devices have the same specification, which promotes efficiency. But continuing progress in HDD and NAND flash memory technology is now producing various kinds of storage device, creating challenges for efficient system operation and management; and storage system based on devices sharing specifications offer less flexibility when scaling out storage capacity.
Toshiba’s new key value object storage technology is a novel solution for scale out capacity with high performance, because the storage can manage data by using key and value.
|Toshiba will demonstrate two key value-based object storage at OpenStack Summit 2015.|
|1.||A performance optimized model integrating an HDD, SSD and 64-bit CPU in a 3.5inch form factor|
|2.||Capacity optimized model for data archiving with high capacity HDD|
|Both models have a 3.5-inch form factor for and easy fit with typical systems.|
The demo will be showcased at booth P1.
