Title (EN) CLOUD STORAGE ARRANGEMENT AND METHOD OF OPERATING THEREOF
(FR) AGENCEMENT DE STOCKAGE EN NUAGE ET SON PROCÉDÉ DE FONCTIONNEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)There is provided a storage arrangement and a method of operating thereof. The storage arrangement comprises a first storage system and one or more second storage systems operatively coupled to the first storage system. First control layer is operable to handle a first logical address space comprising at least one first logical group characterized by a plurality of logical block addresses; said first control layer comprises a first mapping module handling a first mapping structure associated with said at least one first logical group. Each second control layer comprises, respectively, a second mapping module handling a second mapping structure associated with said at least one first logical group. The first mapping structure is configured to provide mapping between logical addresses related to said at least one first logical group and corresponding addresses related to the first physical address spaces, and/or to point to respective second mapping structure configured to provide mapping between logical addresses related to said at least one first logical group and corresponding addresses related to respective second physical address spaces.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un agencement de stockage et sur son procédé de fonctionnement. L'agencement de stockage comprend un premier système de stockage et un ou plusieurs seconds systèmes de stockage couplés de manière opérationnelle au premier système de stockage. Une première couche de commande est actionnable pour traiter un premier espace d'adresse logique comprenant au moins un groupe logique caractérisé par une pluralité d'adresses de bloc logique; ladite première couche de commande comprenant un premier module de mappage traitant une première structure de mappage associée audit ou auxdits premiers groupes logiques. Chaque seconde couche de commande comprend, respectivement, un second module de mappage traitant une seconde structure de mappage associée au ou aux premiers groupes logiques. La première structure de mappage est configurée pour fournir un mappage entre des adresses logiques apparentées audit ou auxdits premiers groupes logiques et des adresses correspondantes apparentées aux premiers espaces d'adresse physique, et/ou pour pointer vers une seconde structure de mappage respective configurée pour fournir un mappage entre des adresses logiques apparentées audit ou auxdits premiers groupes logiques et des adresses correspondantes apparentées à des seconds espaces d'adresse physique respectifs.
