Just give me a huge fast storage system, and a mighty network to delivery it by

A system in the lab. Here is a snapshot from our management GUI.

A couple things to note:

  1. In the lower right corner, you can see the size of the /mnt/unison file system. This is an all flash system. No, there is no compression, nor dedup going on here. We could, but most of the use cases we are dealing with these days … this would not be a win.
  2. In the panel named Network, look at the ib0 interface. Like in the speed area.

Been very much enjoying this network. 20GB/s bidirectional node to node. Finally something that can keep up with our Unison machines. For now.

On a related note … come by and see us at SC15 booth 580. Should be something interesting there.
