LINBIT SDS delivers ultra-fast, resilient block storage for private cloud infrastructure. The SDS solution enables commodity hardware to create high performance storage clusters. Thus LINBIT’s custom open source software-defined storage solution is perfect for cloud environments because it ensures application availability as your storage scales.
The LINSTOR® system – one key software component of LINBIT SDS – consists of multiple server and client components.
DRBD® – the other key software component of LINBIT SDS – is a distributed replicated storage system for the Linux platform.
It is implemented as a kernel driver, several userspace management applications, and some shell scripts. DRBD is traditionally used in high availability (HA) computer clusters, but it can also be used to create larger software defined storage pools with a focus on cloud integration.
Companies implement software-defined storage (SDS) in order to easily provision and manage data storage, independent of the underlying hardware environment.
Since the software simply presents a block device, users do not need to use complex, shared file systems. Because we can use a single node with a filesystem on top of a block device, backing disk failure is transparent to the end user.
All LINBIT solutions work with COTS – commodity off the shelf (hardware) – or with plain VMs on a public or private cloud. Thanks to the OS kernel-based data replication software LINBIT’s solutions do not require SANs, shared storage, special fencing devices, or any other type of special enterprise hardware.
As a provider, your clients demand a high-performance, low-latency cloud environment. Leveraging LINBIT SDS software, you can build your cloud on common off-the-shelf hardware; whether those servers are spinning disk, all-flash, or hybrid. These setups can be hyperconverged or dedicated storage/compute servers. LINBIT’s robust open-source software-based platform enables the deployment of large server clusters configurable to your specific use-case, eg edge-computing.
The Graphical User Interface simplifies multi-cluster management and complex monitoring so your team can just go back to enjoying the power of Kubernetes persistent storage. Easy to install, easy to use.
Yes. LINBIT has an RDMA (verbs) API. The DRBD software works over Infiniband, RoCE, or iWarp to overcome the performance limitations of TCP/IP.
LINBIT SDS is perfectly suited for database workloads and structured data. We’ve reached up to 400,000+ IOPS for a single volume.
We believe strongly in customer satisfaction. That’s why LINBIT offers 24/7 support services from our global team.The LINBIT engineers are perfectly trained to help your team design, deploy, and support your infrastructure.
