Abstract: 

Interest in object-based and software defined storage, such as CEPH, OpenStack Swift, SNIA CDMI and Amazon S3, is expanding rapidly. Is it still just for non-mission critical or archiving applications or can it really be used for more performance-sensitive production application workloads? If so, how can one prove that these newer storage approaches can handle such workloads? Where are the performance limits? What are the testing parameters that the industry should be most concerned about? This session will discuss such topics and propose a new approach to testing the performance of object-based and open source storage.
