It will be a very good decision to use Alibaba Object Storage Service if you need a good OSS at a cheap price. Alibaba is the answer to it, but you can't fully rely on it because sometimes on Southeast Asia server locations it will always have a high possibility of loss (can't be accessed, cant upload/download, etc.).

Read full review Pros Cheap Many location options Well documented Read full review Highly resilient, almost every time we attempted to destroy the cluster it was able to recover from a failure. It struggled to when the nodes where down to about 30%(3 replicas on 10 nodes) The cache tiering feature of Ceph is especially nice. We attached solid state disks and assigned them as the cache tier. Our sio benchmarks beat the our Netapp when we benchmarked it years ago (no traffic, clean disks) by a very wide margin. Ceph effectively allows the admin to control the entire stack from top to bottom instead of being tied to any one storage vendor. The cluster can be decentralized and replicated across data centers if necessary although we didn't try that feature ourselves, it gave us some ideas for a disaster recovery solution. We really liked the idea that since we control the hardware and the software, we have infinite upgradability with off the shelf parts which is exactly what it was built for.

as Alibaba OSS backup,
is good for you that need a cheap-first OSS service. In our team's opinion,
isn't too good for our region market (Southeast Asia) but its service can be reliable. So, we choose it as a backup service for Alibaba Object Storage Service.

offers better search ability compared to Red Hat Ceph Storage but it’s more optimized for large number of object while Red Hat Ceph Storage is preferred if you need to store binary data or large individual objects. To get acceptable search functionality you really need to compile Red Hat Ceph Storage with another database where the search metadata related to Red Hat Ceph Storage objects are stored.

Ceph allows distributing storage objects through multiple server rooms. Ceph is fault-taulerant, meaning the customer can lose a server room and would still be able to access the storage.
