Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

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.).

Red Hat Ceph Storage

It is absolutely, hands down the best storage solution for Open Stack. I would even argue it is the only solution if a company is operating at petabyte scale and need resiliency. The storage solution allows any organization to scale their environment using commodity hardware from top to bottom. It has a battle tested track record where it is even being used as the data storage back end for the Large Hadron Collider at Cern

Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Deployment of Ceph cluster through the Management Console might fail in some cases; better error reporting would be a good improvement there.
  • The Management Console should provide more options for configuring the Ceph cluster in detail.
  • There should be a mechanism for distributing ceph.conf to all nodes.

Alternatives Considered

Alibaba Cloud Object Storage Service (OSS)

I used Backblaze as Alibaba OSS backup, Backblaze is good for you that need a cheap-first OSS service. In our team's opinion, Backblaze 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.

Red Hat Ceph Storage

Red Hat Ceph storage is most comparable with VMware Virtual SAN which we currently use in production. It had about the same default resiliency although we had far more customization options with Ceph albeit more difficult to configure. VMware Virtual SAN is such an expensive item that it was worth it for us to explore Ceph as an alternative. Both had similar cons of being best mated with their preferred hypervisors (Open Stack as opposed to VMware ESXi) and neither had NFS access. Netapp was less performant than our Ceph cluster with cache tiering and far more proprietary however it does have NFS support which is crucial when being used as a storage back end for VMWare. We found our Netapp to be far less resilient as well as it does require regular maintenance.We found for our medium sized business that the Nutanix had the upgradability, NFS support, and performance and much of the resiliency of Ceph so we decided to go in that direction. If our company where operating at petabyte scale however, Ceph is hands down the best solution available!

Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Ceph allows my customer to scale out very fast.
  • 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.
