Policy-based SLA storage management model for distributed data storage services
Keywords:Distributed Storage Systems, Quality of Service, Service Level Agreement, Management Model, Heuristics
AbstractThere is high demand for storage related services supporting scientists in their research activities. Those services are expected to provide not only capacity but also features allowing for more flexible and cost efficient usage. Such features include easy multiplatform data access, long term data retention, support for performance and cost differentiating of SLA restricted data access. The paper presents a policy-based SLA storage management model for distributed data storage services. The model allows for automated management of distributed data aimed at QoS provisioning with no strict resource reservation. The problem of providing users with the required QoS requirements is complex, and therefore the model implements heuristic approach for solving it. The corresponding system architecture, metrics and methods for SLA focused storage management are developed and tested in a real, nationwide environment.
