ESG Lab performed a hands-on test of QuantaStor by deploying a scale-out, Ceph-based block storage solution in under ten minutes.

Highlights included:

  • Simplified provisioning and assignment enabled and assigned by QuantaStor’s vendor neutral management capabilities

  • QuantaStor Grid could be independently expanded or reduced by simply adding or removing nodes

  • ESG Lab created Ceph OSDs on each node. This process automatically created the required RAID protected storage pools and the journal devices (SSD) to be used by the Ceph OSD's without any further intervention.
