Red Hat Ceph Storage Room for Improvement

Sr. Systems Engineer at a tech company with 10,001+ employees
Ceph does not deal very well with, or takes a long time to recover from, certain kinds of network failures and individual storage node failures. I believe the community that supports Ceph is working on this. They will be providing solutions to improve these issues in the newer versions, like Jewel and in the future with technologies like BLU Store and RDMA. View full review »

Ceph lacks a little bit only in performance. It needs to scale a lot and needs very fast and well-orchestrated/configured hardware for best performance. This not a downside though, it is a challenge. Ceph only improves the given hardware. View full review »

In the deployment step, we need to create some config files to add Ceph functions in OpenStack modules (Nova, Cinder, Glance). It would be useful to have a tool that validates the format of the data in those files, before generating a deploy with failures. View full review »

Ceph is not a mature product at this time. Guides are misleading and incomplete. You will meet all kind of bugs and errors trying to install the system for the first time. It requires very experienced personnel to support and keep the system in working condition, and install all necessary packets. View full review »

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. View full review »
