Architecture

Client Access Services

Client access services (NFS) – run on the client side to provide access to data. Some client applications may run directly on storage nodes.

Front-end Servers

Virtual Front-end servers are responsible for translating client read-write operations to storage nodes as directed by metadata nodes.

Automation System

Deployment automation system provides easy automated initial deployment and further scaling of the storage cluster.

Metadata Nodes

Virtual Metadata nodes are responsible for data reliability and availability, including load balancing nodes, integrity checks and restoring data.

Management Services

Monitoring and management services run on all nodes to ensure storage will automatically self-heal, proactively preventing hardware failures and reducing IT maintenance overheads.

Storage Nodes

Virtual Storage Nodes are responsible for storing actual data and maintaining its integrity.
