An integrated solution with pNFS block server and backend block storage comprises of highly optimized layout driver that exposes set of block volume LUNs that hosts the filesystem partition to pNFS clients with appropriate locking/release mechanism for concurrent client access to a file. The implementation includes new SCSI layout type and PR based client fencing for SCSI block storage. The solution is intended to address latency sensitive and scalable bandwidth requirements for high performance data processing workloads through cost optimized storage configurations and performance tiers for productization, and complements NetApp’s open source contributions pertaining to pNFS for file. The project is sponsored as an open source initiative under NetApp Hyperscalar Storage Group Advanced Development organization by closely collaborating with Linux NFS and kernel development community.
