Integrate Ceph object storage in a VMware vSphere environment
It can be challenging to integrate #Ceph in a #VMware environment, but with the right interface, #vSphere administrators can reap the rewards of #objectstorage. The benefits of object storage are numerous: Its modular design makes it highly resilient, and its flat structure makes it easy to use. It’s able to scale to petabytes of data — which makes it a good option for public storage — and that level of scalability makes it more affordable than traditional block- and file-based storage. Based on these benefits, it’s no wonder the open source world has taken an interest in object storage, with Red Hat Ceph leading the pack.
