Red Hat Ceph Storage Review

Replicated and erasure coded pools allow multiple copies, easy scale-out of nodes


What is our primary use case?

  • File Services NFS and CIFS (RBD images)
  • Object Services S3 and Swift (radosgw)
  • I/O into replicated and erasure coded pools (librados)

How has it helped my organization?

Replicated and erasure coded pools have allowed for multiple copies to be kept, easy scale-out of additional nodes, and easy replacement of failed hard drives. The solution continues working even when there are errors.

What is most valuable?

I/O into replicated and erasure coded pools (librados).

What needs improvement?

It needs a better UI for easier installation and management.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has provided retention of all customer sites on which it has been installed in the last three years, with no catastrophic failures so far.
