Title
(EN) STORAGE SYSTEM USING CLOUD STORAGE AS A RANK
(FR) SYSTÈME DE STOCKAGE UTILISANT UN STOCKAGE CLOUD EN TANT QUE RANG
Abstract
(EN)
A computer-implemented method for utilizing cloud storage as a rank comprises allocating storage space on one or more cloud storage devices via a cloud interface; mapping the allocated storage space to corresponding virtual local addresses; grouping the virtual local addresses to create one or more virtual local ranks from the allocated storage space on the one or more cloud storage devices; converting local data access requests for the one or more virtual local ranks to cloud data access requests configured for the cloud interface; and communicating the cloud data access requests to the one or more cloud storage devices via the cloud interface.
(FR)
Un procédé mis en œuvre par ordinateur pour utiliser un stockage cloud en tant que rang comprend les étapes consistant à : allouer un espace de stockage sur un ou plusieurs dispositifs de stockage cloud par l'intermédiaire d'une interface cloud ; mapper l'espace de stockage alloué à des adresses locales virtuelles correspondantes ; grouper les adresses locales virtuelles pour créer un ou plusieurs rangs locaux virtuels à partir de l'espace de stockage alloué sur le ou les dispositifs de stockage cloud ; convertir des requêtes d'accès à des données locales pour le ou les rangs locaux virtuels en requêtes d'accès à des données cloud configurées pour l'interface cloud ; et communiquer les requêtes d'accès à des données cloud au ou aux dispositifs de stockage cloud par l'intermédiaire de l'interface cloud.
