Deploying pNFS over Distributed File Storage - Jiffin Tony Thottan & Niels de Vos, Red Hat

pNFS is the clustered solution provided by standard NFS protocol which allow NFS clients to access directly and parallelly the Storage device. This is achieved by the separation of metadata from the datapath. Therefore pNFS solution provides better bandwidth utilization, loading balancing across storage devices and significant performance improvement for I/O's. Now consider applying the pNFS over a Distributed Storage instead of native NFS. Here instead of talking to single server, pNFS client can interact directly with all the Storage Servers , i.e I/O distribution become much more effective and also avoids performance bottleneck with in a single server. In this session, Jiffin Tony Thottan is planning to give an overview about pNFS, deploying simple pNFS solution on a Distribute File Storage by taking example of glusterfs + NFS-ganesha and challenges involved in while doing so.
