Scale-Through with Stellus
Unlike traditional file systems that support scale-up or scale-out storage strategies, Stellus is designed for fast-paced scale-through environments, where data can scale up and out efficiently, independent of one another.
When selecting or upgrading a system, add a Key-Value Store (KVS) to expand capacity and a Data Manager (DM) to increase total application throughput.
Key-Value Storage Over Fabrics
Samsung-backed start-up Stellus emerged from stealth mode to announce its software defined Stellus Data Platform. This is a storage technology involving native key-value stores to create a new type of memory native file system running on commodity NVMe SSD hardware. The company said that it can reduce global file and block contention and costs, remove scale and performance limitations and inconsistency of global data caches with key-value over NVMe fabric. In addition, the company says that it offers algorithmic data locality with a memory native architecture to remove performance limitations of global maps at scale. This software can work on premise or in the cloud.
