Why Ceph Storage?
While your developers need a cloud storage solution, IT/OPS needs a unified pool of storage that can be scaled up by simply adding storage server nodes. Ceph is a unified, distributed storage system designed for excellent performance, reliability and scalability. It is an open source software project to build scale-out storage that meets all of the above requirements for both block and object storage for OpenStack. Ceph has built-in self-healing and can withstand underlying hardware failures; additional capacity can be added whenever required.
Mirantis Flow offers Ceph as a primary solution for all storage types, including image storage, ephemeral storage, persistent block storage, and object storage.
