Open vStorage and OpenStack – the Storage Switzerland take

Open vStorage is HyperFast storage for OpenStack Virtual Machines. SSDs and PCIe Flash cards inside the hosts are used as Tier 1 storage while OpenStack Swift, Ceph, or any S3 compatible object storage solution is used as Tier 2 storage. George Crump and Charlie Hodges from Storage Switzerland and our own Wim Provoost discussed the OpenStack Open vStorage relation during a 12 minute podcast.

Some of the questions that are raised and answered in this podcast:

  • What is Open vStorage?
  • Which problems is Open vStorage trying to solve?
  • Why does Open vStorage focusses on the OpenStack market?
  • Is Open vStorage trying to replace Ceph as OpenStack storage?
