Ceph

Manage Oceans of Data on Industry-Standard Hardware

Using commodity hardware, Ceph liberates storage clusters from traditional scalability and performance limitations, dynamically replicating and rebalancing data within the cluster while delivering high performance and virtually infinite scalability. With block, object and file storage combined on a single platform, Ceph provides a flexible foundation for all your data storage needs.

Benefits of Ceph with Aberdeen

Ceph offers a great storage architecture which delivers easily scalable object, block and file-based storage under a unified system.

costs

Lower
Costs

An open-source solution means no licensing fees, and software-defined technology means no more expensive, proprietary hardware.

thin provisioning

Thin
Provisioning

Thin provisioning ensures that storage space is not occupied until data is written, enabling faster cloning of virtual machines.

automatic data protection

Automatic
Data Protection

Ceph automatically replicates data to at least three nodes. Data is stored in erasure-coded pools, a method that breaks data into small fragments and stores it in a distributed manner for greater data protection.

object storage

High-Performance
Object Storage

From video delivery networks and cloud DVR to network functions virtualization, Ceph delivers high-performance object storage for the most demanding workloads.

flexible storage

Flexible
Storage

Unify storage management with one platform for block, object and file storage.

industry-standard hardware

Industry-Standard
Hardware

Build a storage cluster using commodity servers and disks to lower the cost of storing data.

unlimited scalability

Unlimited
Scalability

Manage as many nodes as you need, as one consistent storage system.

Solution Kit Overview

When choosing the right system for upgrading the infrastructure within your business or installing a new application for the first time, there are several factors involved in making the right choice. Aberdeen and Ceph will make that choice much easier.

Stirling CN-104

Admin Node

The Ceph admin node manages configuration files and keys for your entire Ceph cluster.

Gateway Node

The Ceph gateway node is an object storage interface that provides applications with a RESTful gateway to the Ceph cluster. This modest 1U UP server features single 2nd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor, 6 DIMMs; up to 1.5TB ECC DDR4-2933, PCI-E 3.0 x16 (FHFL) slots, 1 PCI-E 3.0 x8 (LP) slot, 2 SuperDOM ports with built-in power, along with 4 Hot-swap 3.5" drive bays 2x 10GBase-T port. This rackmount is 80 Plus Platinum Certified in testing and efficiency, and ready to use for your efforts; whether it's for personal or business-related needs.

Monitor Node

The Ceph monitor node maintains maps of the cluster state, which are critical for coordination between Ceph daemons. Monitors also manage authentication between daemons and clients. At least three monitors are required for redundancy and high availability.

OSD - Performance

The Ceph OSD, or object storage daemon, stores data, handles data replication, recovery, rebalancing, and provides monitoring information to Ceph Monitors and Managers. An OSD configured for performance should use high-frequency CPUs, 40GbE network controllers, and all-flash storage.

Stirling CN-424

OSD - Balance

The Ceph OSD, or object storage daemon, stores data, handles data replication, recovery, rebalancing, and provides monitoring information to Ceph Monitors and Managers. An OSD configured for balance should use high-frequency CPUs, 25GbE network controllers, and NVMe-based caching paired with HDD-based storage. This 2U 24-drive storage server also features Dual 2nd Gen. Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, 4 DIMMs; up to 6TB ECC DDR4-2933, Intel® Optane™ DCPMM support, and 2 PCI-E 3.0 x16, 1 PCI-E 3.0 x8 slots.

Stirling CN-436

OSD - Storage

The Ceph object storage daemon (OSD) stores data, handles data replication, recovery, rebalancing, and provides monitoring information to Ceph Monitors and Managers. An OSD configured for storage should use mid-frequency CPUs, 40GbE network controllers, and HDD-based storage.
