Comparing High-Performance Cloud File Systems

by Jeff Tabor

 
Taking workloads to the cloud is both exciting and frustrating for many IT departments. Finding the right path can be difficult, especially when you have high-performance applications. Thankfully, numerous solutions have been designed to take your existing apps and storage to the cloud.
 
Find the Cloud File System Right for Your Workload
However, major differences between these solutions exist, including performance, level of complexity, and cost-effectiveness. While each solution touts specific strengths, it's important to find the cloud file system that best fits your needs.
 
This white paper compares and contrasts enterprise-grade cloud file system options. It directly compares the Avere vFXT with Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), RedHat Gluster, and Intel Lustre.
 
In this paper, you will learn:
  • What each solution offers and how they are used to bridge the gap between file and object storage protocols in the cloud
  • How to calculate total cost of ownership (TCO)
  • How to connect cloud and existing on-prem resources with a cloud file system
  • Why it's important to find a balance between performance, complexity and cost when choosing a cloud file system
