28.6. Deployment Examples

The following examples illustrate how VDO might be used in KVM and Ceph deployments.

VDO Deployment with KVM

To see how VDO can be deployed successfully on a KVM server configured with Direct Attached Storage, see Figure 28.1, “VDO Deployment with KVM”.

VDO Deployment with Ceph

To see how VDO can be deployed successfully on a Ceph Object Storage Daemon (OSD) node, see Figure 28.2, “VDO with a Ceph OSD Node”. Note that, in this case, multiple instances of VDO are used on a single physical server, one for each OSD.
