Ceph is in the Linux kernel and has been integrated with the leading open source cloud management platforms. Key to Ceph’s design is the autonomous, self-healing, and intelligent Object Storage Daemon (OSD). Storage clients and OSDs both use the Controlled, Replication, Under, Scalable, Hashing (CRUSH) algorithm to efficiently compute information about data containers on demand, instead of having to depend on a central lookup table.

CRUSH provides a better data management mechanism than older approaches and enables massive scale by cleanly distributing the work to all the clients and OSDs in the cluster. CRUSH uses intelligent data replication to ensure resiliency, which is better suited to hyper-scale storage. Let’s take a deeper look at how CRUSH works to enable modern cloud storage infrastructures.

Transforming How We Deliver Value: Agility at Scale

Continuous delivery in software development allows us to deliver incrementally, get quick feedback, and react. A key enabler is the adoption of agile techniques and methods; key inhibitors in the enterprise are size, scale, and complexity. Now we must coordinate work across multiple interdependent teams to deliver value, rather than focusing on developing a single product or application. Amy Silberbauer shares her experience of adapting SAFe in an enterprise organization and describes the struggles, mistakes, and successes throughout that process. Learn how to avoid some common pitfalls as you and your own organization embark on this same transformation.

SONDERDRUCK für Datacore Software

SANsymphony-V10 oder Virtual SAN – dieser Vergleich drängt sich auf, wenn die Speichervirtualisierung zum Einsatz kommen soll. Zudem spielt auch noch das Scale-out-Prinzip eine Rolle, wie es zum Beispiel von Nutanix favorisiert wird. Vor dem Hintergrund der Vorstellung und der Produktfreigabe von Version 10 von SANsymphony-V sowie der Freigabe von Virtual SAN soll eine vergleichende Darstellung die wesentlichen Unterschiede herausarbeiten.
