Ceph is a mature platform for software-defined storage environments scaling to dozens or hundreds of PetyBytes. However real life implementation, operations and maintenance are complex tasks. Ensuring the right compatibility of software and hardware, avoiding bottlenecks between storage nodes, keeping the complete stack running, exchanging end-of-life hardware and operating the complete stack efficiently may create substantial efforts and risks for IT. Playing around with petabyte-scale storage is no option and reliable service levels are key. Fujitsu presents an easy solution how to move from “Build your own disaster” to an enterprise class service level way of using Ceph based storage.

Embrace the creative process (iteration and experimentation) on a project and see where the path takes you.
