Samsung and Red Hat Collaborate on NVMe + Ceph Storage

Samsung Electronics and Red Hat announced a high-performance, data center storage architecture that combines NVMe SSDs with Ceph.

Samsung said its NVMe Reference Design platform, together with Red Hat Ceph Storage, can deliver a highly scalable, more efficient TCO reference architecture that supports unified storage for enterprise IT or cloud environments in handling transactional databases, machine-generated data and unstructured data.

The combined storage solution – referred to as the Red Hat Ceph/Samsung Reference Architecture – can be deployed in an OpenStack environment to support the bandwidth, latency and IOPS requirements of high performance workloads and use cases, such as distributed MySQL databases, telco nDVR content retrieval and financial services. The Samsung NVMe Reference system is a dual-socket Xeon-based system with an EIA-compliant, 2RU chassis. It uses 4x 40Gb/s networking connectivity with remote direct memory access (RDMA).

“The data center community will appreciate the importance of the Red Hat Ceph/Samsung Storage Reference Architecture, as the harvesting of data analytics becomes a priority for businesses that want to better understand their customers and stay ahead of their competition,” said Jim Elliott, corporate vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. “Data-driven companies in search of performance optimization in an OpenStack environment can benefit from the high performance offered by Red Hat Ceph Storage software and our NVMe Reference Design as a compliment to existing capacity-optimized infrastructure,” he added.
