Ceph Storage Solutions
We love Ceph. We’ve used it for several projects recently, including to build a very high-performing and scalable storage landscape for the Swinburne University of Technology, as well as a custom internal lab to help our Solutionauts work more efficiently. Ceph has become a core component in helping us to build cost efficient, scalable and storage software solutions.
Why do we love Ceph so much?
- Increased control over data distribution and replication strategies
- Consolidation of object storage and block storage
- Fast provisioning of boot-from-volume instances using thin provisioning
- CephFS Support
- We love Open Source 🙂
For enterprise-level businesses, the demand for additional data storage is growing too fast for traditional storage options to continue to be an affordable solution. Continuing down this path means you’ll be forced to increase your budget dramatically in order to keep up with your data needs.
However, there is another answer—SUSE Enterprise Storage. This intelligent software defined storage solution, powered by Ceph technology, enables you to transform your enterprise storage infrastructure and reduce costs while providing unlimited scalability. The result is an affordable and easy-to-manage enterprise storage solution. We teamed up with SUSE to provide seamless storage solutions. Aptira has been a partner since 2016, – and is SUSE’s first solution partner in APJ – sharing our expertise across a range of different Open Source projects.
You should consider Ceph if you want to manage your object and block storage within a single system, or if you want to support fast boot-from-volume.
If you’d like to learn more about Ceph, we’re offering a 2 day Ceph training course, which covers all the core features of Ceph Storage Essentials, including:
- Ceph Node Types
- Ceph Architecture
- Cluster Maps
- Object Placement
- Background Producers
- Customising Ceph
- and more.
We’re also offering end of financial year discounts on all of our technology training – including Ceph. This discount applies to pre-paid training, booking multiple courses, bundling with your hardware, software licences (such as SUSE) and any of our services. So if you’re looking to upgrade your storage infrastructure, or learn how to manage it more efficiently – now is the time.
This deal is running until the end of June, but can be used at any time during the next 12 months. For more information on our Ceph Storage Solutions, or to get the best discount for you – chat with our Solutionauts today.
