Red Hat Ceph Storage delivers software-defined storage on your choice of industry-standard hardware. With block, object, and file storage combined into 1 platform, Red Hat Ceph Storage efficiently and automatically manages all your data.
Take advantage of high-performance object storage for emerging applications like video delivery networks, cloud DVR, and network functions virtualization (NFV). Deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage clusters and NVMe SSD in performance tiers that are optimized to support the bandwidth, latency, and IOPS requirements of high-performance workloads.
Benefit from the expertise of Ceph's creators and primary open source sponsors through best-in-class consulting, award-winning global support, and expert training. Get access to more than 1,000 instructor-led recordings, and up to 400 hours of hands-on labs.
Lower the cost of storing your data by building a storage cluster using standard, economical servers and disks. Red Hat Ceph Storage isn't picky about hardware, so select the servers you need based on performance, capacity, or both.
Red Hat Ceph Storage is tightly integrated with Red Hat OpenStack® Platform and all its services, including Nova, Cinder, Swift, Glance, and Manila. You can instantly provision hundreds of virtual machines from a single snapshot and build fully supported clouds on standard hardware.
Red Hat Ceph Storage is optimized for large installations—easily scaling to multiple petabytes or greater. Unlike traditional network-attached storage (NAS) and storage area network (SAN) approaches, it does not become dramatically more expensive as a cluster grows. Importantly, Red Hat Ceph Storage also supports increasingly popular containerized environments such as Red Hat OpenShift® Container Platform. It also offers numerous options for award-winning support—both in person and online—focusing on the overall user experience.
These options continue throughout the deployment life cycle, offering a consistent release schedule, supported upgrades,
and deployment resources. Red Hat offers an extensive support knowledge base, including reference architectures, performance and sizing guides, and technical briefs—all designed to help organizations deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage with greater success.
Data analytics. As a data lake, Red Hat Ceph Storage uses object storage to deliver massive scalability and high availability to support demanding multitenant analytics workloads. Disparate analytics clusters can be consolidated to reduce cost of ownership, lower administrative burden, and increase service levels.
Hybrid cloud applications. Red Hat Ceph Storage is ideal for on-premise storage clouds. Because Red Hat Ceph Storage supports the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) interface, applications can access their storage with the same application programming interface (API), whether in public or private clouds.
Red Hat Ceph Storage provides the data protection, reliability, and availability required by demanding object storage workloads, offering data lakes for analytics storage, hybrid cloud storage, and even storage for popular backup and restore applications. The platform provides flexible and costeffective hybrid cloud infrastructure that can scale to support not only the growth of big data but also to manage the influx of requests from data scientists needing access to a proliferation of analytics tools.
Infrastructure teams are able to provide self-service, workload-isolated virtualized analytics environments through Red Hat Virtualization, or container support through Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
