It is still common for the lowest layer of data storage to be 'tape'. While individual tape devices apparently offer very good performance, this is only achieved in a limited set of circumstances, and the overall throughput can easily become very poor very quickly. How can this be avoided, if at all? Is it sufficient to just add more and more equipment? These difficulties will be...

We recently set up a small (40TB) Lustre built from HP commodity components. It was surprisingly simple, and we achieved reasonable performance without much tuning. We'd like to share this experience.
19. Experience and Lessons learnt from running high availability databases on Network Attached Storage
Nilo Segura Chinchilla (CERN)
The Database and Engineering Services Group of CERN's Information Technology Department provides the Oracle based Central Data Base services used in many activities at CERN. In order to provide High Availability and ease management for those services, a NAS (Network Attached Storage) based infrastructure has been set up. It runs several instances of the Oracle RAC (Real Application Cluster)...
