OPENSTACK

In public and private cloud creation, deployment and orchestration, the OpenStack project is unparalleled. The foundation brings together community and companies for creating software that controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, managed through a dashboard or via the OpenStack API. OpenStack works with popular enterprise and Open Source technologies making it ideal for various infrastructures.

In addition to traditional Enterprise-Class storage technology, many organizations now have a variety of storage needs with fluctuating performance and price requirements. OpenStack has support for both Object Storage and Block Storage, with many deployment options for each depending on the needs of use.

 

Improving Ceph for Big Data

Ceph is a distributed object store-and-file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability and scalability. SanDisk’s InfiniFlash OS is based on Ceph and we are an active contributor to the Ceph community, focusing on making Ceph flash-optimized and ready for large-scale flash deployments.

 

SanDisk supports the work in OpenStack through its Ceph based object storage solution; thus providing a scalable storage solution for insatiable cloud requirements. SanDisk is also committed to working with Cinder, Swift and other key components that can offer all of the advantages of OpenStack to our customers.
