DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE-DataCenter with GlusterFS Storage Cluster

TOFFEE-DataCenter with GlusterFS Storage Cluster: GlusterFS Storage Cluster (cloud storage) is a distributed cluster network-attached storage file system often used in cloud computing, streaming media services, and content delivery networks (CDN). GlusterFS can be implemented as file-based mirroring and replication, file-based striping, file-based load balancing, volume failover, scheduling and disk caching, storage quotas, and volume snapshots. And this can span across tens and hundreds of servers. GlusterFS is open-source, incredibly powerful, easy to scale and relatively easy to setup and because of these reasons the biggest players in IT world such as Facebook, and many others are building their entire IT storage infrastructure with GlusterFS. With TOFFEE-DataCenter you can optimize huge data volumes of GlusterFS servers connected between the main data-center(s) and remotely connected remote disaster recovery site(s) as shown below.

TOFFEE-DataCenter WAN Optimization with GlusterFS Storage Cluster [CDN]

For example here is TOFFEE-DataCenter (or TOFFEE) optimized ISP networks(tunnels) between countries. In this case there is an ISP in Libya having slow backbone Internet, hence he can establish a TOFFEE based optimized tunnel between Romania Data-center (having high-speed internet) and Libya. Similarly there is another ISP in Argentina is able to boost his backbone Internet services by establishing a tunnel between his ISP and US West-Coast (California) Data-center.

ISPs can also build multiple TOFFEE optimized tunnels for redundancy, load-share, etc. And in this case the ISP in Argentina established two tunnels. One between Argentina ISP to US West-Coast (California) Data-center and the other between Argentina ISP Romania Data-center as shown below.

TOFFEE-Mocha WAN Emulation software development - Update: 15-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Today I completed doing all the changes which are meant for the new upcoming TOFFEE-Mocha release. I have increased the resolution and the range of all factor variables. Instead 1 to 10 range now they have a range of 1 to 30. Unlike before the value 1 means it is lot more intense (or in some cases less intense) and the uppermost value 30 means lot less intense (or in some cases lot intense).

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment in Large Infrastructure and or ISP Networks ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Large Infrastructure or ISP setup: In case if you are an ISP and interested in deploying a large customer WAN Optimized network or an add-on enhanced (WAN Optimized) network for select few customers, then you can deploy something as shown below. Although this case is not meant for hobby/DIY users. This is a feasible solution for high-end professional application and the same can be deployed.

TOFFEE Benchmarks :: TOFFEE-1.1.28 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is the TOFFEE WAN Optimization benchmarks of the TOFFEE version: TOFFEE-1.1.28. This is the current TOFFEE development version till date (2-Jul-2016). This is a HPC TOFFEE variant meant for high-end custom build servers and high-end desktops (i.e High Performance Computing a.k.a HPC). TOFFEE built this way often needs customized kernel compilation and build such as processor specific and hardware specific tune-ups since it is highly CPU intensive (if not offloaded via Hardware Accelerator Cards).

TOFFEE (and TOFFEE-DataCenter) deployment with VPN devices ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
In case if you need to deploy TOFFEE along with your existing VPN devices you can deploy the same as shown below. This will allow your VPN devices to encrypt your TOFFEE WAN Optimized network data. NOTE: Make sure about the VPN deployment topology done in the right order. Else TOFFEE (LAN side) may get VPN encrypted packets which may not be possible (and or difficult) to further optimize. Hence always make sure to deploy them in a topology suggested below so that TOFFEE devices are out of VPN tunnel.
