Unlocking the Potential of SaunaFS Architecture
SaunaFS is organized into distinct components to ensure seamless operation:
(Master, Shadows, and Metaloggers)
(Native Linux/Windows/ MacOS, NFS)
Chunk server Functionality
Within the Chunkserver component, SaunaFS operates with precision:
Files are broken down into manageable chunks, with each chunk accommodating data up to 64 MiB in size.
These chunks are further logically divided into blocks of 64 KiB, representing the minimum block size within the system.
To maintain data integrity, each block includes 4 bytes of CRC (Cyclic Redundancy Check) stored within the chunk's metadata.
Simplified writing process
When a client seeks to create a file and write data to it, SaunaFS ensures a streamlined process:
The client establishes a direct connection with the Chunkservers identified in the previous step.
Data transmission occurs in blocks of 64 KiB, supplemented with 4 bytes of CRC for each block.
Chunkservers play a critical role in the data transmission process. They verify the CRC of received data blocks to maintain data integrity.
Upon verification, data is efficiently written to the storage devices, and metadata is updated as necessary, ensuring the most up-to-date and accurate information.
Redundancy with Reed-Solomon Erasure Coding (EC4+2 example)
Example File: File_01_65_MiB_goal_ec42.dat
- The file is divided into 4 data parts, each containing up to 16 MiB of data.
- Total data size: 4 x 16 MiB + 4 x 0.25 MiB = 65 MiB of DATA.
- For every 4 pieces of data, SaunaFS creates two PARITY pieces of the same size.
- This redundancy ensures data integrity and availability even in the event of hardware failures or data corruption.
Enhanced Data Resiliency
SaunaFS elevates data storage standards by not only incorporating Reed-Solomon erasure coding for robust redundancy but also by implementing additional measures for rapid failure detection and correction. It constantly performs data scrubbing and verifies the integrity of data chunks by ensuring the CRC32 checksum matches the control sum. This meticulous process guarantees that your data remains uncorrupted and secure.
With these advanced features, SaunaFS offers unparalleled data protection and reliability. It's an ideal solution for both small-scale file management and handling extensive data sets, making it a preferred choice for progressive, data-intensive enterprises seeking confidence and efficiency in their data storage solutions.
