Managed Services for Ceph Data Storage

When you decide to take control of your data storage, one open source solution stands above the rest. Ceph was designed to handle block, object and file storage using a common underlying architecture that is built to never lose data, period. Ceph is designed to scale horizontally to handle as much data as you need.

Best of all, Ceph is freely available to operate thanks to a dedicated community of volunteers who maintain it.

On the other hand, Ceph is a complex system that takes time to understand. It is not uncommon to run into trouble getting things set up, or to wonder if you have misconfigured any of the thousands of options.

When you want to use Ceph but need someone to help you get it right, that is the time to contact Koor.

Koor will take care of everything for you and your data: from speccing out and setting up your bare-metal or cloud storage clusters, to day-to-day operations like provisioning, monitoring, and log-aggregation and analysis. Koor watches for and resolves issues as they arise. Koor also takes care of forward-looking system checks, preventive upgrades, and migrations. Anything to help take care of your data.

Koor uses state-of-the-art tools to operate your Ceph cluster, like Prometheus and Grafana.

Reasons to outsource Ceph data storage
