Two of the most prominent solutions for providing cost-effective SDS are Virtuozzo Storage and Ceph, a popular open source project. This paper describes how Virtuozzo Storage is significantly faster than Ceph in almost every respect, ranging from 50 percent to as much as 1000 percent. Specifically, for highly concurrent, randomized workloads, Virtuozzo Storage was up to 10 times faster than Ceph, and for more sequential workloads, Virtuozzo Storage was 50 percent faster on average.
In summary, Virtuozzo Storage is a clear leader in the software-defined storage industry in terms of both I/O performance and feature set. Virtuozzo Storage’s best-in-class vertical scalability, reliability, flexibility, and affordability make it an ideal solution for any service provider or enterprise looking for high performance, fault tolerant, and cost-effective storage solutions.
