As the cloud becomes popular and data exponentially grows, modern Web-scale data-dependent services and applications require higher capacity and performance from the storage system. These services and applications need to handle a large number of objects in real time, but traditional storage systems designed primarily for HDDs are inefficient to handle workloads in a scalable way. The main reason is that existing software was developed assuming that storage devices are slow and unreliable. Legacy systems traded IOPS for bandwidth and adopted heavy recovery mechanisms for consistency and persistence. As storage gets faster, the performance gap between the user experience and the product spec is widen. In this presentation, Dr. Ki presents how intelligent storage can mitigate these problems and help to implement scalable data processing.
