ChubaoFS talk at Intel IPDC summit 2019

September 10, 2019

As the invitation from Intel, our speaker sharing the main architecture design of ChubaoFS and the key features.


  • High performance: Optimized for both large and small files.
  • Multi-Tenancy: Share the whole storage and resource utilization ratio.
  • General- Purpose Storage Engine: Support both sequential and random read/write.
  • Highly Scalable: Individual meta and data node clusters. Scales with meta and data partitions increase.
  • POSIX filesystem APIs: Compatible whenever possible, and compromise between semantics and performance.

Meanwhile ChubaoFS user scenarios were shared and increasing number of people interested in these. 

  • Underlying storage for in-memory DB: Preserve snapshots.
  • Cloud storage for AI platform Training service: Decouple computing from storage.
  • Latency-sensitive services: Used for storing Nginx logs.
  • Elasticsearch: Takes care of replications and high availability.
  • Service MySQL: Running MySQL history tables on ChubaoFS directly since most of the requests are read.
