DescriptionInspite of the world migrating to the Cloud, the compute intensive industries like Semiconductor design are yet to benefit from it. Most organizations have invested in building a large IT infrastructure to manage all the requirements. Since Cloud provides the latest technology and workload elasticity, it gives an opportunity to be leveraged during peak demand. This in turn can lead to more cost-efficient data centers which can now be designed for average load only. To achieve this, the biggest challenge is figuring out the minimum set of data which needs to be uploaded/synchronized to the Cloud during the peak demand. Since the current file systems available in the market are not designed to address this problem, the minimum data set needs to be identified and synchronized manually before the peak demand. This makes the process of bursting to the Cloud or a remote Datacenter inefficient, time-consuming, and impractical.
In this paper, Spillbox, Inc. proposes a new file system for hybrid Cloud which synchronizes data during peak demand automatically and efficiently. This paper also highlights the benefits of this easy-to-use hybrid Cloud file system resulting in higher performance and overall cost reduction.
