Ceph just rocks

About Ceph

Ceph provides your applications with object, block, and file system storage in a single unified storage cluster, making Ceph flexible, highly reliable and easy for you to manage. Ceph’s CRUSH algorithm liberates storage clusters from the scalability and performance limitations imposed by centralized data table mapping.

At 42on we have over 10 years of Ceph experience. We have also contributed by adding features and bug fixes to Ceph and the eco-system around it. Two familiar names within the Ceph community, who work at 42on are Wout van Heeswijk and Wido den Hollander. They have extensive experience with building and running Ceph clusters for, for example universities, fintechs, the gaming industry, software companies, government agencies and other high tech aware organizations. 

Types of storage

Object storage

Object storage is at the heart of Ceph. You can store millions of objects through language bindings for C, C++, Python, PHP and Java or use the S3 compatible REST gateway.

Block Storage

Block storage is based on ased on the object storage of Ceph. It provides a fully distributed Block Device with the integration of inti Qemu (KVM), libvirt, CloudStack and OpenStack.

File Storage

File storage is a fully distributed POSIX-compliant file system striped over replicated objects in the Ceph cluster. With it you can store large amounts of data and scale when needed.
