What is Ceph Storage?

Enterprises deploying cloud hosting needed storage solutions that can help them manage critical business data. With the rise of open source software and high-performance storage systems, their penetration into cloud technology became imminent. Underlining this principle of high-performance storage systems for fast compute speed, Ceph storage was formed. What is Ceph Storage? Ceph is an open source software put together to facilitate highly scalable object, block and file-based storage under one whole system. The clusters of Ceph are designed in order to run commodity hardware with the help of an algorithm called CRUSH (Controlled Replication Under Scalable Hashing). This algorithm […]
