Avere CLFSLoad ingest Python library and command line utility

Project description


Avere CLFSLoad is a Python-based tool that copies data into Azure Blob storage containers and stores it in Microsoft's Avere Cloud FileSystem (CLFS) format. The proprietary CLFS format is used by the Azure HPC Cache and Avere vFXT for Azure products.

This tool is a simple option for moving existing data to cloud storage for use with specific Microsoft high-performance computing cache products. Because these products use a proprietary cloud filesystem format to manage data, you must populate storage by using the cache service instead of through a native copy command. Avere-CLFSLoad lets you transfer data without using the cache - for example, to pre-populate storage or to add files to a working set without increasing cache load. (For other data ingest methods, read Moving data to the Avere vFXT for Azure cluster.)

CLFSLoad runs on one Linux node and transfers a single rooted subtree. It assumes that the source tree does not change during the transfer.

The destination is an Azure Storage container. When the transfer is complete, the destination container can be used with an Azure HPC Cache instance or Avere vFXT for Azure cluster.
