Today’s Software Defined Storage deployments are dominated by SAS attached just-a-bunch-of-disks (JBOD), with some new drives moving to an Ethernet connected blob store interface. This talk examines the advantages of moving to an Ethernet connected JBOD, what infrastructure has to be in place, what performance requirements are needed to be competitive, and examines technical issues in deploying and managing such a product. The talk concludes with a real world example, including performance analysis.

Learning Objectives

Understand the potential advantages of moving to an Ethernet connected JBOD (EBOD)
Understand the architectural differences between a JBOD based approach and an EBOD based approach.
Understand the complexities that are solved and that need to be solved, anchored in real world data, to be able to deliver an EBOD to the market.
