BlueStore Boosts the Performance of Ceph Storage
BlueStore is a major enhancement to Ceph storage because it eliminates the longstanding performance penalties of kernel file systems, with a whole new OSD backend which utilizes block devices directly.
SUSE is First to Deliver BlueStore
SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 Beta is now available and includes the industry’s first production-ready version of BlueStore. Based on the Ceph Luminous release, SUSE Enterprise Storage 5 broadens the use cases for the SUSE Software Defined Storage. With BlueStore inside, the performance of SES 5 is increased by up to a factor of two or more, erasure coding increases the efficiency of the fault tolerance, and storage utilization is enhanced with data compression.
