OpenStack + Ceph Storage
Use Ceph storage with scale out architectures—like OpenStack. Red Hat Ceph storage integrates more tightly with OpenStack than traditional, proprietary storage solutions.
Why software-defined storage is the future
If you’ve been trying to persuade leadership that software-defined storage is right for your organization, now’s the time to arm yourself with all the right information to make your case.
Monash University hosts the Monash eResearch Centre (MeRC) in Australia. MeRC partners with research groups and connects them—and their collaborators—to appropriate hardware, software, and services to accelerate their research. To meet client demand, MeRC needed to adopt agile, software-based storage. The centre chose to deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage, running on Dell servers, to cost-effectively provide the scale and flexibility to support its highly agile research environment.
