Red Hat Ceph Storage Review

Without any extra costs, I was able to provide a redundant environment


What is our primary use case?

We are using it in a Proxmox Cluster.

How has it helped my organization?

Without any extra costs, I was able to provide a redundant environment. After I built the first cluster, other departments notice the performance and redundancy, then they started building their own clusters. I helped them to design and build their cluster. Now, we have four Ceph Clusters running, three in production and one in the test environment.

What is most valuable?

We are using Ceph internal inexpensive disk and data redundancy without spending extra money on external storage.

What needs improvement?

This product uses a lot of CPU and network bandwidth. It needs some deduplication features and to use delta for rebalancing. 

After adding new OSD, e-balancing is an huge issue if not properly configured, as it can cause huge performance issues.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.
