Scale-out Storage Cluster

Scale-out Cluster Management

QuantaStor makes creation of scale-out clusters a simple one dialog operation where the servers are selected along with the front-end & back-end network ports for cluster communication.

Service Management

QuantaStor automatically configures three servers as Ceph Monitors when the cluster is created. Additional monitors may be added or removed but all clusters require a minimum of three monitors.

Storage Media Management

OSDs and Journal devices are all based on the BlueStore storage backend. QuantaStor also has support for existing systems with FileStore based OSDs but new OSDs are always configured to use BlueStore.
