For most enterprise-level businesses, the demand for data storage is growing much faster than the average price for storage is shrinking. That means you’ll be forced to increase your budget dramatically to keep up with your data demands. However, there is another answer — SUSE Enterprise Storage. This intelligent software-defined storage solution, powered by Ceph technology, enables you to transform your enterprise storage infrastructure to reduce costs while providing unlimited scalability. Deliver a highly scalable and resilient storage environment designed to scale from terabytes to petabytes. Reduce IT costs with an intelligent software-defined storage management solution that uses commodity off-the-shelf servers and disk drives. Seamlessly adapt to changing business and data demands with the capability to automatically optimize, upgrade or add storage when needed.
Optimized solution for bulk and large data storage requirements. Highly Scalable and resilient. SUSE Enterprise Storage solutions provide a single unified software-defined storage cluster that provides applications with unified object, block and file storage designed with unlimited scalability from terabytes to petabytes, no single points of failure to maximize system resiliency and to maximize application availability following hardware failures. SUSE Enterprise Storage is a highly scalable and resilient software-defined storage solution, powered by Ceph technology. It enables organizations to build cost-efficient and highly scalable storage using industry standard, off-the-shelf servers and disk drives. By separating the physical storage hardware (data plane) from the data storage management logic or “intelligence” (control plane), this solution has no proprietary hardware components required, allowing you to use low-cost off-the-shelf hardware.
SUSE Enterprise Storage — Scalable And Highly Available
SUSE Enterprise Storage is highly redundant and designed to have no single points of failure. This maximizes system resiliency and availability. Further reduce capital and operational costs for your storage infrastructure with a truly unified block, object and files storage solution. SUSE Enterprise Storage intelligent algorithms store data in a highly distributed manner. It continuously monitors data utilization and re-balances data placement. This means it can optimize system performance without the need for someone to monitor and manage storage administration. SUSE Enterprise Storage provides unified block, object and file system access. It is tightly integrated into OpenStack and provides native Cinder block support for images and volumes. It also integrates with the OpenStack virtualization infrastructure to connect block devices to virtual machines.
Seamlessly Adapt To Changing Business And Data
SUSE Enterprise Storage enables you to be highly responsive to emerging needs. It can automatically respond to changing demands with self-managed and self-healing storage that optimizes for system performance, enables you to easily provision and seamlessly deliver additional storage without disruption and provides maximum flexibility by using off-the-shelf commodity hardware that you can repurpose if business priorities change. SUSE Enterprise Storage solutions provide a single unified software-defined storage cluster that provides applications with object and block storage designed with unlimited scalability from terabytes to petabytes, no single points of failure to maximize system resiliency and to maximize application availability following hardware failures.
SUSE Enterprise Storage On Ceph
Ceph is the most popular OpenStack distributed storage solution. It is extensively scalable from storage appliance to cost-effective cloud solution. As of the Jewel release, Ceph provides industry-leading storage functionality such as unified block, object and file storage, thin provisioning, erasure coding and cache tiering. It is self-healing and self-managing. SUSE Enterprise Storage customers will gain confidence that the enterprise storage solutions they deploy are tightly integrated with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server. This has a long history of delivering leading data storage functionality to enterprise customers. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server was first to provide a journaling file system with XFS, followed by first-to-market support for EXT3 and ReiserFS. It was also the first to support a clustered file system with OCFS2. And, most recently, it is the first to market with support for the scalable, copy-on-write, B-tree file system BtrFS.
