SUSE Enterprise Storage is a highly scalable and resilient software-based storage solution, powered by Ceph. It enables organizations to build cost-efficient and highly scalable storage using commodity, off-the-shelf servers and disk drives. SUSE defines software-based storage as the process of separating the physical storage hardware (data plane) from the data storage management logic or “intelligence” (control plane). The storage solution requires no proprietary hardware components, enabling the use of off-the-shelf hardware. SUSE Enterprise Storage provides the data storage management logic. Independent hardware vendor (IHV) partners provide the off-the-shelf storage hardware. Together, SUSE and its IHV partners deliver industry-leading, cost-efficient, scalable storage solutions.
|Reduce your capital expenditures (CAPEX)
SUSE Enterprise Storage solutions provide significant CAPEX savings compared with traditional enterprise storage arrays and appliances, because you can use commodity off-the-shelf servers and disk drives.
|Reduce your operational expenditures (OPEX)
