Transforming How Data is Delivered: Using Lightbits and Intel Technology to Supercharge Your Data Storage Performance


Cloud as an operational model, along with Kubernetes for managing cloud native applications, are transforming the way insight is gained from data.

The need for systems designed to support cloud-native environments requires the choice of compute, networking, and highly scalable disaggregated storage and performance without the need for traditional administration.

While Kubernetes provides mechanisms for applications to transparently utilize multiple compute nodes, ensuring that applications retain access to persistent storage demands that the underlying storage infrastructure is resilient while also meeting the capacity and performance needs of thousands of applications.

In this webinar, we will compare two storage systems suited for cloud native application environments:

  • Lightbits: A software defined NVMe over TCP storage system designed for cloud environments using Intel technology
  • Ceph: An open-source storage platform often used by cloud native developers
