Full Admin to Leverage all the Power of Ceph Storage Systems

Flex Metal's Object Storage Component is powered by Ceph, an open-source enterprise software storage platform. Ceph provides exabyte level storage with no single point of failure, resulting in a completely distributed operation. All Flex Metal Clouds give you full root access to all members of the deployment. This is your infrastructure and we do not have access unless you add us to help with something. This allows you to configure Ceph for your specific use cases.

  • Control your replication levels, Erasure Coding options, even Compression on the Fly options.
  • Use your NVMe drives as fast storage or accelerate large scale spinner deployments.
  • Replicate an existing Ceph Cluster to this cluster for DR purposes.
  • Replicate this cluster out to another Flex Metal Cloud or to any other Ceph Cluster you adminster
  • Your Ceph Storage Cluster will be provisioned with the latest stable Nautilus or choose a bare metal deployment to select your own version.
