Ceph Storage Appliance
Unified Virtual Storage, UniVirStor (UVS)
Mars 400 Ceph Storage Appliance is a turn-key software-defined storage solution for enterprise and data center. The appliance integrates ARM-Based Micro-Server with tuned Ceph and web user interface.
Mars 400 provides a unified storage cluster that supports the object, block, and file system. It is designed to provide excellent performance, reliability, and scalability with no single point of failure and minimum failure domain.
Benefit on ARM microserver architecture
Mars series server platforms accommodate 8x Dual-Core ARM 64-bit servers in a one-rack-unit (1RU) chassis. Two in-chassis redundant switches provide 4x10 Gbps uplink for horizontal scale-out and client access. It eliminates network - storage device bottlenecks by pairing a single server node with a single storage device. Every ARM server node provides dedicated CPU, memory, storage and network interface resources to its supported object storage device (OSD). As a result, OSD performance is far more balanced than traditional single-server node designs supporting many OSDs. Further, Mars platform architecture provides greater accessibility due to its lack of a single point of failure. Also, by limiting the failure domain to a single disk, the Mars exhibits faster recovery from microserver failures.
UVS manager to eliminate the entry barrier on Ceph Storage use.
Ceph software-defined storage is powerful and agile. However, managing the Ceph cluster is not a simple task. Ambedded's web-based management tool UniVirStor (UVS) Manager enables the IT managers to manage the Ceph cluster easily through the graphical user interface.
The UVS manager provides features for Ceph deployment, monitoring, managing pool, block device image, CephFS file system, object storage gateway, CRUSH map, iSCSI LUNs, and disaster recovery, etc.
It automates commonly used functions to simplify the administrator's workload and avoid human errors caused by using the command-line interface.
The UVS manager runs on all monitor nodes to provide redundancy. You don't need extra servers to host the UVS manager software to build the high availability user interface.
