Mars500 NVME All Flash Ceph Storage Appliance
UniVirStor Flash:Mars 500
Mars 500 Ceph Appliance is designed to meet high-performance cloud-native data storage needs. It utilizes the latest NVMe flash technology to provide a turnkey software-defined storage solution.
Mars 500 NVMe Ceph Appliance tightly integrates Ampere Altra Arm Server and UniVirStor. UniVirStor (UVS) is a software package that includes Linux, Ceph, and Ceph management GUI (UVS Manager).
With Ampere Altra, this NVMe Ceph appliance could meet a low carbon footprint without sacrificing its high IO performance.

- Mars 500 Ceph Storage Appliance Video
A webinar video to introduce the Ambedded Ceph storage appliance. It includes about the basic idea of Ceph storage, the arm-based microserver architecture, the benefits on running Ceph storage on microserver platform, how to plan your ceph cluster, a walk through on Ceph management GUI (Ambedded UVS manager), different protocols supported by Ceph, and some use cases for Ceph storage.
Unboxing and introducing the Arm microserver-based Ceph appliance hardware architecture and details in the Arm server. You can also learn how it could help you to simplify the deployment on a HA ceph cluster with minimum configuration.
In this video, it talks about, the problems that Ceph attempts to solve, the benefits on Software defined storage, how Ceph is different to conventional storage. Also it talks about the Ceph core service such as MON, OSD, MDS, MGR. it explains the CRUSH rule, replication and erasure coding on Ceph storage, in the end it provide the comparison table on hardware recommendation that Ceph community vs. Red Hat and SUSE.
