Unlocked Partners » Ceph

Mirantis has made Ceph distributed storage auto-deployable in Mirantis OpenStack as an alternative to Swift (for object and image storage) and for file and block-storage under Cinder. Ceph’s foundation is the Reliable Autonomic Distributed Object Store (RADOS), which provides your applications with object, block, and file system storage in a single unified storage cluster -- making Ceph flexible, highly reliable and easy for you to manage.

Ceph Object Storage

Ceph Object Storage can supplant Swift-based object storage in OpenStack

Ceph RADOS Block Device (RBD)

Ceph RBD interfaces with the same Ceph object storage system that provides the librados interface and the Ceph FS file system, and it stores block device images as objects. Since RBD is built on top of librados, RBD inherits librados capabilities, including read-only snapshots and revert to snapshot. By striping images across the cluster, Ceph improves read access performance for large block device images. The Ceph RBD driver is Mirantis OpenStack Certified and is included in the Mirantis OpenStack distribution .iso.
