High-performance cluster storage for IOPS-intensive workloads


As Ceph takes on high-performance, intensive workloads, solid-state drives (SSDs) become a critical component of Ceph clusters. To address the needs of Ceph users to effectively deploy All-Flash Ceph clusters optimized for performance, Samsung Semiconductor Inc. and Red Hat have performed extensive testing to characterize optimized configurations for deploying Red Hat® Ceph Storage on Samsung NVMe SSDs deployed in a Samsung NVMe Reference.
