Scale-out Block Storage
QuantaStor's Scale-out Block Storage was designed specifically to simplify the deployment and management of high-performance storage for OpenStack deployments. Using Ceph-based storage pools with hardware RAID to accelerate performance via NV-RAM and SSD read/write cache layers, QuantaStor provides the fastest, most reliable, and easiest to manage Ceph storage solution for OpenStack cloud deployments.
QuantaStor's Ceph-based block storage pools provide active/active highly available block storage with instant failover. QuantaStor scale-out configurations enable the use of enterprise SATA, SAS and datacenter grade SSDs to be combined to deliver high-performance storage using an efficient hybrid mix of platter and solid state storage. Storage grids scale-out from just three appliances to 64 appliances in a single cluster with zero downtime. Storage is accessible via iSCSI and the native Ceph RBD client for optimal performance.
