Supermicro® Total Solution for Ceph

Designed for Reliable Large Scale Storage Deployments

With the advancement of large scale cloud computing platforms like OpenStack, the business of data storage has been forever changed. Scale out software defined storage solutions are rapidly becoming pervasive as the implementation model of choice for large scale deployments. Agile business models require equally agile platforms to build upon. By replacing the proprietary data silos of the past with flexible server hardware, cloud providers have more control of their environments resulting in better value for their customers. Supermicro has embraced this change, offering the widest selection of server hardware in the industry.

Ready to Deploy Configurations

  • Role specific cluster configurations – turn-key cluster configurations offer performance, capacity, and density to fit popular application workloads. Memory and networking options are easily customized to meet specific requirements
  • Optimized network configurations – cluster and rack level integration offers streamlined deployment of Red Hat Ceph Storage and infrastructure with consistency not attainable using improvised methods
  • Storage/Media Ratios to fit user applications – deployment of flash and rotating magnetic media allows the solution to meet workload tuned performance and density targets
Workload Optimized Cluster-level Building Blocks

Object-based Storage with Block and Object Interfaces

Organizations prefer object-based storage when deploying large-scale storage systems because it stores data more efficiently. Object-based storage systems separate the object namespace from the underlying storage hardware - This simplifies data migration.

The Ceph Storage Difference

Ceph's CRUSH algorithm liberates client access limitations imposed by centralizing the data table mapping typically used in scale-out storage. Ceph continuously re-balances data across the cluster-delivering consistent performance and massive scaling. The self-healing capabilities of Ceph provide aggressive levels of resiliency. Data redundancy is achieved by replication or erasure coding allowing for extremely efficient capacity utilization.

Supermicro/Ceph Ready Systems

Supermicro leads the industry in user friendly options for the toughest IT challenges. Ceph Ready systems and racks offer a bare metal solution ready for both the open source community and validated through intensive testing under Red Hat Ceph Storage.

Ceph testing is a continuous process using community versions such as Firefly, Hammer, Jewel, Luminous, etc. against various Operating systems such as Ubuntu and CentOS. In addition, Enterprise versions of Ceph such as SUSE Enterprise Storage and Red Hat Ceph are also used. Contact your sales representative about your specific requirements.
