The University of Alabama at Birmingham gives scientists and researchers a massive, on-demand, virtual storage cloud using OpenStack and Ceph for less than $0.41 per gigabyte. This session will detail how the university IT staff deployed a private storage cloud infrastructure using the Dell OpenStack cloud solution with Dell servers, storage, networking and OpenStack, and Inktank Ceph. After assessing a number of traditional storage scenarios, the University partnered with Dell and Inktank to architect a centralized cloud storage platform that was capable of scaling seamlessly and rapidly, was cost-effective, and that could leverage a single hardware infrastructure for the OpenStack compute and storage environment.
