Micron 9200 MAX NVMe With 5210 QLC SATA SSDs for Red Hat Ceph Storage 3.2 and BlueStore on AMD EPYC


This document describes an example configuration of a performance-optimized Red Hat® Ceph® Storage 3.2 cluster using Micron® SATA SSDs and NVMe™ SSDs, rack-mount servers based on AMD EPYC™ architecture and 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) networking infrastructure. It details the hardware and software building blocks used to construct this reference architecture (including the Red Hat Enterprise Linux® OS configuration, network switch configurations and Ceph tuning parameters) and shows the performance test results and measurement techniques for a scalable 4-node Ceph architecture.
