Choosing the right storage for your OpenStack cloud

  • July 12, 2017
  • Webinar

Choosing the right storage to meet enterprise application requirements is tough in today’s expanding storage market. The challenge can be even more acute when it comes to deploying Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) with OpenStack® for cloud infrastructure. 

Join this webinar to hear about the type of storage best suited for cloud workloads while addressing scalability, performance, manageability, and operational service-level agreements (SLAs). We’ll discuss:

  • Factors to consider while architecting to support workloads, cost, performance, protocol, connectivity type, capacity, and scalability.
  • OpenStack components—like Nova, Cinder, Glance, Swift, and Manila—that require a storage back end and how they’re used.
  • Types of storage available in the market and how to identify which will give you optimum performance with scalability.
  • Implications of choosing the wrong storage back end.
  • How Ceph can be used to meet OpenStack use cases, including advantages and disadvantages.
  • When it makes sense to use a commercial implementation instead of ready-to-use Ceph storage.
