CLOUD STORAGE IN A PRIVATE CLOUD DEPLOYMENT - Lessons for Data Intensive Research

Victor Chang, Robert John Walters, Gary Wills

Abstract

This paper demonstrates portability for a private cloud deployment, which has a detailed case study about Cloud Storage service developed as part of the Cloud Computing Business Framework (CCBF). Our Cloud Storage design and deployment is based on Storage Area Network (SAN) technologies, details of which in-clude functionalities, technical implementation, architecture and user support. Experiments for data services (backup automation, data recovery and data migration) are performed and results confirm backup automation is completed swiftly and is reliable for data-intensive research. Data recovery result confirms that execution time is in proportion to quantity of recovered data, but the failure rate increases in an exponential manner. Data migration result confirms execution time is in proportion to disk volume of migrated data, but the failure rate increases in an exponential manner. Issues in data recovery and data migration must be resolved prior dealing with petabytes of data. Our Cloud Storage offers cost reduction, time-saving and user friendliness supported by users and is highly relevant to similar portability of private cloud.
