Which is better for making "Data Containers?" Gluster, OpenEBS or CEPH?

In this article we will compare the three sets of software for:

First Up is Open EBS:

OpenEBS is the most widely deployed and easy to use open-source storage solution for Kubernetes.

OpenEBS is the leading open-source example of a category of cloud native storage solutions sometimes called Container Attached Storage. OpenEBS is listed as an open-source example in the CNCF
Storage Landscape White Paper under the hyperconverged storage solutions.

Here is the link to that Whitepaper: https://github.com/cncf/sig-storage/blob/master/CNCF Storage Landscape - White Paper.pdf

OpenEBS Mayastor is the most recent version.
OS: Linux, Unix, any ix

Containers Supported:  kubernetes, rust, storage, k8s, nvme, pvc

Documents and White Pages https://github.com/openebs/openebs-docs

CEPF
Ceph uniquely delivers object, block, and file storage in one unified system.

CEPH OBJECT STORE
RESTful Interface
S3- and Swift-compliant APIs
S3-style subdomains
Unified S3/Swift namespace
User management
Usage tracking
Striped objects
Cloud solution integration
Multi-site deployment
Multi-site replication
CEPH BLOCK DEVICE
Thin-provisioned

Images up to 16 exabytes, Configurable striping, In-memory caching, Snapshots, Copy-on-write cloningKernel driver supportKVM/libvirt supportBack-end for cloud solutions

Incremental backup, Disaster recovery (multisite asynchronous replication)

CEPH FILE SYSTEM, POSIX-compliant semantics

Separates metadata from data, Dynamic rebalancing, Subdirectory snapshots, Configurable striping, Kernel driver support

FUSE support, NFS/CIFS deployable  Here is more from CEPH: https://docs.ceph.com/en/latest/  We will also take a look at Operating Systems and Chipset Compatibility. 

Operating Systems to be tested include but are not limited to:  Windows, Linux, Apple, Droid 
Chipsets on Processors: Intel, ARM, AMD and others.

GlusterFS or Gluster classic

GlusterFS is a scalable network filesystem suitable for data-intensive tasks such as cloud storage and media streaming. GlusterFS is free and open source software and can utilize common off-the-shelf hardware

Check back here soon for the full report.  Almost done.  Check back in a few days when we look at heat and energy consumerd

Research by yours truly,

Site Two Initated in the North Georgia Mountains today at an undisclosed location.

Gordo8, Class V, Monolithic Solar is now online and our install team is returning to Tallahassee this evening.

The Gordo8 placed will now begin to evaluate the site for sun and climate at this latitude and longitude.

The client or Computer Dudes of Engineer level or higher can all access any of the Monoliths remotely through their phone, laptop or any internet interface.

Site Two will became the 2nd Solar Monolithic Data Center on planet Earth about an hour ago.

Great Work! Thanks to everyone - :)Todd

The Computer Dudes, Inc of Tallahassee, Florida sold our 4th Solaronemonolith today.

Serial Number 004. A Gordo-8, Class V, Monolithic Solar. EC - Extended Capacity. The client doubled the number of batteries and added 2 extra solar panels, for use in winter in the mountains

This one will be loaded on a one of our trucks with a crew of 2 tech, driven to the site, setup and activated on Monday.

Cheers! :)Todd

We stopped using Facebook and buying advertising there about 3 years ago.

So it is with vast amusement we watched them get pwned .

That said, I do hope they fix and clean up Facebook. It might be nice to be able to use it again one day. - Todd W. Byars, and The Computer Dudes.

Atlanta or Sarasota - which is next on my engineering jobs list.

To be honest we don't mind working in OLD or NEW Data Centers. Cleaning servers, upgrading drives, instructing the staff.

The vacuum cleaners we use in a data center are highly airfilterd so they capture all the dust,

unlike the old days when the insides of the servers would get so dirty we would have to remove them from the racks and take them to the service truck outside and clean them.

Oh yeah and back then they were all 3U cases or larger.

Where would you rather go to work on a data center? :)T

Checking In from Savannah, Georgia... up here for a job and a few days vacation.

The city has grown and cleaned up since my last visit.

Savannah, Georgia is a port city, with heavy industry, technology and access deep into Georgia on the Savannah River.

Comms are Good. Power Infrastructure much improved since last visit.

I will be grading a Data Center tomorrow morning then plan to stay and enjoy the city for a few days.

Great clear cool Fall weather too. Hope you have a great weekend. Admin
