Performance Analysis of an Hyperconverged Infrastructure using Docker Containers and GlusterFS

Rodrigo Leite, Priscila Solis, Eduardo Alchieri

Abstract

The adoption of hyperconverged infrastructures is a trend in datacenters, because it merges different type of computing and storage resources. Hyperconverged infrastructures use distributed file systems (DFS) to store and replicate data between multiple servers while using computing resources of the same servers to host virtual machines or containers. In this work, the distributed file system GlusterFS and the hypervisor VMware ESXi are used to build an hyperconverged system to host Docker containers, with the goal of evaluate the storage performance of this system compared to traditional approach where data is stored directly on the server’s disks. The performance of the container’s persistent storage is evaluated using the benchmark tool Yahoo Cloud Service Benchmark (YCSB) against the NoSQL databases Cassandra and MongoDB under differents workloads. The NoSQL database’s performance was compared between the hyperconverged system with multiples disk configurations and a traditional system with local storage.
