Block Storage File and Object Storage
Overview Capacity Optimized Performance Prime
Description Cost-effective capacity-optimized block storage service for Tier2 workloads. Cost-effective general performance block storage service for mission-critical low-latency or throughput workloads. Premium block storage service for mission-critical, low-latency workloads. The underlying Service Infrastructure deployed is designed to deliver 1000 IOPS/TiB under the following workload characteristics: 70/30 read/writ RR = 4:1; block size = 16k; and concurrency = 60% and without any replication configurations enabled. File and object Storage is designed to deliver fast read and write.

The significant steps include:

1.During the Installation Process, experts will perform the point-in-time checks essential for your system before the installation of storage arrays.

  • Performing System checks
  • Network Checks, and
  • Software checks
  1. Finalize all the general configuration, including credentials and users as expected values.
  2. Validation of ports and performing health checks.

All the essential steps performed during the installation include:

  1. Site Planning Phase – Site installation will be performed including physical installation of storage arrays like racking and stacking, cabling, power-on, cooling, connectors, and health checks.
  2. Configuration – the basic configuration of the storage array
  3. Preparing the networking environment for connectivity to CTS servers and replication between the arrays (where required) including, IP address assignment, routing and firewalls configuration, DNS, and proxy assignment.
  4. We follow a detailed checklist for a seamless installation of the storage device.
  5. Provision of service infrastructure and cabling between arrays and switches.
  6. Testing and validation of the setup with end-to-end configuration.
