Deploying Ceph with High Performance Networks

As data continues to grow exponentially storing today’s data volumes in an efficient way is a challenge.  Many traditional storage solutions neither scale-out nor make it feasible from Capex and Opex perspective, to deploy Peta-Byte or Exa-Byte data stores.

In this newly published whitepaper, we summarize the installation and performance benchmarks of a Ceph storage solution. Ceph is a massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage solution, which uniquely provides object, block and file system services with a single, unified Ceph storage cluster. The testing emphasizes the careful network architecture design necessary to handle users’ data throughput and transaction requirements.
