Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Secure Storage with EMC and Oxygen Cloud
Audience and Purpose
For companies who are looking to build their own cloud computing infrastructure, including Enterprise IT Organizations, Cloud Service Providers, or Cloud Hosting Providers, the decision to use a cloud for the delivery of IT services is best done by starting with the knowledge and existing experience of your IT staff or partners. This reference architecture captures the essential steps on how to proceed with building a scale‐out storage cloud architecture. It outlines an example installation of EMC Atmos cloud optimized storage with Oxygen Cloud secure file accessibility. The installation, based on Intel® Xeon® processor‐based servers, creates a multi‐site, capacity‐optimized cloud storage deployment. The whitepaper contains details on the cloud topology, hardware, and software deployed installation and configuration steps, and tests for real‐world use cases that should significantly reduce the learning curve for building and operating your first cloud infrastructure.
This reference architecture defines and tests a scale‐out storage cloud reference architecture based on EMC Atmos with secure file access based on Oxygen Cloud software. This configuration is an example of the scale‐out storage application data store usage model built on standard high-volume converged storage servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor family. The configuration and testing validated the REST/HTTP interface supported by EMC Atmos and also validated the replication and compression capabilities provided by Atmos. The test showed EMC Atmos as an agile implementation available today for meeting enterprise end‐user needs for security, efficiency, and scalability in the scale‐out storage cloud usage model. It also showed Oxygen Cloud as an example ideal application for enabling anywhere, any device secure access to enterprise storage.
