Filers, Raid6, & IOPs

I have started contributing to blogs at Egnyte labs. My first tour of duty is scalable object store layer – our next generation object store, which can scale at least 10 times, is more fault tolerant and resilient, offers a richer granular feature set and gives us more IOPs.

As we design the new system we are realizing that many things do not work at 10X scale, optimization at 10X scale is different, and the laws of physics do change at 10X scale. Interesting problems to have and solve.
