Micron Ceph block storage expands NVMe configurations
#Micron Technology Inc. is adding an all-flash reference architecture for #RedHat #Ceph block storage, the third offering in Micron’s Accelerated Solutions portfolio that launched in 2016.
Product SKUs are being finalized for the Micron Accelerated Ceph Storage Solutions package, which will be sold as a four-node storage cluster and three attached 1U mapping nodes.
The recommended architecture includes qualified Supermicro Ultra Server or SuperServer storage servers, Micron 9100 MAX PCI Express-based NVMe SSDs and Red Hat Ceph 2.1 software-defined storage. It is designed as a building block to support scale-out OpenStack cloud infrastructure.
Each Ceph storage node accommodates 10 2.4 TB U.2 SSDs, or 96 TB of raw storage per cluster. Micron recommends nodes be configured with two Intel Xeon E5-2699 V4 processors, eight 32 GB DDR4 registered dual inline memory modules and two Mellanox single-port 50 Gigabit Ethernet networking switches.
