Up to 9X more effective storage and 100X more IOPS/GB than Ceph
Why simplyblock as an alternative to Ceph?
Ceph is a powerful and flexible software-defined hybrid storage solution. However, it was built and designed for spindling disks and this legacy architecture is hard to overcome. Despite its many advantages, Ceph suffers from inefficient use of CPU and disk resources and low IOPS/GB performance.
Simplyblock offers the best features of Ceph (great flexibility and reliability, superior integration with OpenStack, outstanding cluster architecture) upgraded by superior IOPS performance, storage efficiency and access latency.
Up to 9x more effective storage per GB than ceph on the same raw storage
Up to 100x more IOPS / CPU Core or GB
Full native integration for OpenStack cinder, nova and swift as well as Proxmox.
File and object storage available in combination with the Redhat GFS2 filesystem and OpenStack Swift for S3
Ultra low access latency and great scalability
Similarly to ceph, simplyblock solution is based on commodity server hardware and TCP/IP but rather than proprietary SAN technology, it provides very low access latency, high IOPS/GB and CPU core, great scalability and flexibility.
Accelerate your performance while saving costs
Benefit from the first highly secure and scalable storage solution designed from scratch for hybrid clouds
10x cheaper per TB of storage and per k-IOPS than conventional SAN storage
Super-easy to switch
Switching between Amazon EBS Elastic Block Storage or S3 and simplyblock or back can be achieved in minutes
Linear scalability through distributed cluster architecture: scales beyond 100,000,000 IOPS
Designed for Hybrid-Cloud
Bandwidth-efficient (near) real-time replication from/to the AWS cloud independent of non-cloud storage infrastructure
Add, remove or replace SSDs and storage nodes at any time - the cluster will always re-balance storage usage and load across all available resources
Resilient against ransomware attacks
First block storage with zero RPO point-in-time recovery after ransomware attacks
