StorageGRID Webscale Best Practices?

anand1008

Hi,

 

As per this article on AWS S3, the object key should have random prefixing to index it for better performance:

 

http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AmazonS3/latest/dev/request-rate-perf-considerations.html

 

It is applicable for large number of requests and I am expecting 1000+ requests per second.

 

Do these best practices apply for StorageGRID Webscale too?

 

Do we have a best practices document available for StorageGRID Webscale too?

Hi anand1008,

 

 

StorageGRID Webscale does not require a random key prefix to improve performance. Objects are distributed for processing amongst all the nodes independent of the object key name.

 

You can find more information about StorageGRID Webscale and S3 here:

Scott -

 

Yes, it's a brand new three day class we're just rolling out -

Installing and Configuring StorageGRID Webscale (INCOSGWS)

 

It's so new we don't have a schedule for it on the web site yet.

 


I hope this response has been helpful to you.

StorageGrid is a passion for me, so I took notice of your post.

 

I found no TR docs with BCPs.

It seems our best references are the StorageGrid docs.

 

As an AWS fan I found your reference to the AWS doc very interesting.

 

I'm currently working on developement of an AltaVault course witch includes AWS and StorageGrid as cloud stores.

Any additional input you might find would be very usefull to me and other users!
