Deploy a storage architecture that is massively scalable, software-defined, and ideal for the cloud

Block device storage and object gateway storage are available in a single solution. Red Hat Ceph Storage has a software-defined architecture you can integrate into your existing hardware and infrastructure for lower capital costs and more flexibility. Even better for your IT environment, Ceph Storage offers robust, multi-tenant storage for cloud and virtualization applications like Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.

Product Policies and Support Programs

Life Cycle Policies

Red Hat offers subscription services for each major release of Red Hat Ceph Storage throughout four life-cycle phases—called Production 1, 2, and 3, and an Extended Life Phase.


Collocated Containerized Storage

Isolate resources for peak load and recovery situations by colocating one of the scale out daemons in each storage node, thus allowing for creation of a cluster comprised entirely of storage nodes. Because this simplified strategy reduces demand for resources and hardware costs, colocation is an ideal scenario for TCO workloads.

State of the Art Monitoring and Management

Gain insight into high-level cluster health, drill-down to specific nodes to identify performance gaps, manage volumes, or initiate cluster upgrades with the dashboard management interface.

Day One Management with Ansible

Go from download to available storage quickly. Simplified deployment enables you to set up OSD, MON, and Ceph Manager nodes with an Ansible playbook on RHEL so that your cluster is immediately ready for your workloads. MDS, RGW, and the ceph client role can also be optionally deployed with Ansible.

Expanded Workload Reach

Migrate legacy workloads from a file-based application to an object store by using NFS v3 or v4 protocols. Platforms without a native driver (VMware and Windows) can access Ceph Storage via iSCSI, which delivers block-level access via an industry storage networking standard. Complement Ceph’s block and object storage capabilities with CephFS, which provides stability, protection from data loss, high availability, and full scale-out capabilities, such as multiple active MDS configuration.
