IBM® Storage Ceph is an IBM-supported distribution of the open-source Ceph platform that provides massively scalable object, block, and file storage in a single system.
IBM Storage Ceph is designed to operationalize AI with enterprise resiliency and consolidate data with software simplicity and run on multiple hardware platforms to provide flexibility and lower costs.
Engineered to be self-healing and self-managing with no single point of failure and includes storage analytics for critical insights into growing amounts of data. IBM Storage Ceph can be used as an easy and efficient way to build a data lakehouse for IBM watsonx.data and for next-generation AI workloads.
This IBM Redpaper publication explains the implementation details and use cases of IBM Storage Ceph. For more information on the IBM Storage Ceph architecture and technology that is behind the product, see the IBM Storage Ceph Concepts and Architecture Guide, REDP-5721 IBM Redpaper.
