PeerCache dramatically reduces storage requirements, both for cloud storage and your on-premise filer.
Cloud storage reduction: The shared peer caches eliminate duplicate storage because the copies are now in the cache fabric rather than in your cloud back-end storage or your on-premise storage. This eliminates the cost of paying for data copies in the cloud, including those that are never used — a number that would continue to grow over time.
This same feature also allows you to decouple your on-premise compute nodes from your existing NFS filer storage bottlenecks.
NFS Filer disk storage reduction: PeerCache dramatically reduces your expensive NFS filer storage disk space, due to its ability to separate common file content from the descriptive file metadata containing file names, sizes, owners, groups, masks, along with times of creation, access and modification. You eliminate unnecessary duplication of physical copies that contain both the common data and the meta data in every copy.
The workspace versions share the same set of common files. Only the metadata changes and per workspace changes require additional storage, and once those changes are checked into the filer, the space is freed up on the PeerCache’s P2P caching networks.
