Benefits of ISTORE’s Hardware Architecture
Decentralized processing (shared-nothing)
- system can withstand partial failure
Intelligent devices monitor their own “health,” test themselves, manage failures, collect application-specified performance data, and execute application worker code
- provides the foundation for self-maintenance and self-tuning
Plug & play, hot-swappable bricks ease configuration, scaling
- hardware is specialized/scaled by selecting an appropriate collection of devices
- disks, DRAMs, WAN/LAN interfaces, ...
