QoreStor Current Version - Interoperability Guide

Cloud deployment reference configurations

The tables below describe reference configurations for deployments to Microsoft Azure. These configurations are based on QoreStor images available in the Azure Marketplace. Configurations are described for 4 installation modes, as described below:

  • Tier 0 - Community edition
  • Tier 1 - Cloud Optimized
  • Tier 2 - Standard
  • Tier 3 - Large

QoreStor Tier 0 configurations

The following VM Size Instance is then recommended and validated for Tier 0, with expected Performance rate between 1 TiB/Hr to 1.5 TiB/Hr.(measured for a 90% dedupe ingest data with RDA/RapidNFS).

Table 22: Tier 0 configuration
Series Size vCPU Memory:GiB Temp Storage (SSD) GiB Max data disks Max uncached disk throughput: IOPS / MBps Max NICs / Expected network bandwidth (Mbps)
DSv3 Standard_D4s_v3 4 16 32 8 6400 / 96 2 / 2000

This will add 6 Standard SSDs or Standard HDD as Data Repository, starting with 256 GB, can be later expanded up to 20 TiB.

  • 1 TiB (1.5 TiB raw space) -- No License needed.
  • 5 TiB (6 TiB raw space)
  • 10 TiB (12 TiB raw space)
  • 20 TiB (24 TiB raw space)

Additional VMs Size that are tested and validated for tier 0:

QoreStor Tier 1 configurations

The following are the recommended VM instances validated for Tier 1 configurations. These configurations have an expected performance rate between 1.5 TiB/Hr and 2.5 TiB/Hr (measured for a 90 % dedupe ingest data).

The Pre-configured image is Standard_D12s_v2. This will create one Premium SSD of 1024 GB for Metadata and 5 Standard SSDs or Standard HDD of 5 TiB. Storage can be later expanded to 10 TiB, 20 TiB, or 40 TiB

  • 5 TiB
  • 10 TiB
  • 20 TiB
  • 40 TiB
