Accelerating Ceph for Database Workloads with an all PCIe SSD Cluster
PCIe SSDs are becoming increasingly popular for deploying latency sensitive workloads such as database and big data in enterprise and service provider environments. Customers are exploring low latency workloads on Ceph using PCIe SSDs to meet their performance needs. In this session, we will look at a high IOPS, low latency workload deployment on Ceph, performance analysis on all PCIe configurations, best practices and recommendations.
