Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

Information is stored efficiently and data is handled with care. One of the most interesting features is the availability of zones. If the instance is terminated, your data will not be lost. Boot time is reduced. Instances can be stopped and started. It may be more expensive to use an EBS AMI than to use a non-EBS AMI.

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

Pros

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

  • Data will be persistent irrespective your EC2 instance goes down
  • They are quite fast in terms of read and write
  • Memory management in terms of EBS is better than the OBS

Red Hat Ceph Storage

Cons

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

  • Creating too much EBS can be disaster if you are not properly organized by tags
  • In terms of pricing it's a bit on higher side.
  • In terms of performance, there is room for improvement as sometimes reading or saving the data can be painful.

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.

Amazon EBS is a great tool and fairly easy to use as long as you are familiar with the Amazon Web Service ecosystem. It allows a great way for you to move storage around easily and allows you to quickly provision storage as needed based on the business requirement. For us, it's easy to move between our EC2 images that had been linked with EBS storage between these Amazon accounts.

The support for Amazon Elastic Block Store is great as long as you can articulate your needs. Like most tools, there may be some back and forth before you find a support person that is knowledgable in the tool and can provide you with necessary insights.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

Amazon Elastic Block Store is an excellent storage replication solution. It gives you a quick and simple way to get all the storage you need, and you may alter it if you need more or less storage for your projects.

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!

Return on Investment

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)

  • In terms of ROI, I found it's really cost-effective since maintenance cost is not there. No need to spend extra money on the procurement of hard drives
  • On demand feature of Ebs is quite effective when you require extra storage you can allocate and pay as per your need.
  • Accessibility from everywhere and deployment of it across different geographical location.

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.
