SDM shatters more world records with near-instantaneous remote mirroring
posted on May 9, 2016 by Amit Golander
A year ago Plexistor’s SDM established record-breaking local file-level access latency: millions of operations per second at only a few microseconds per op. This was — and still is — orders of magnitude faster than any other published performance results.
Ever since, we have been working toward extending SDM’s performance capabilities to handle remotely mirrored/replicated writes as well.
A goal that many experts considered impossible.
“The difficult we do immediately. The impossible takes a little longer.”*
We’re proud to announce that after a lot of hard work we’ve optimized SDM to achieve this goal.
As demonstrated in this solution brief, Plexistor’s software using Mellanox Ethernet gear can easily handle millions of remotely mirrored writes per second at latencies as low as few microseconds.
The testing explored in the solution brief demonstrates that SDM’s low latency benefits also apply to high-availability configurations as well, making data available even in the face of full-node failures.
Another world record shattered by orders of magnitudes.
