I'm starting off 2022 in classic yak shaver style; with something I'm not supposed to be doing for tenuous financial gain -- running Ceph on ZFS.
I recently reworked my storage setup in pursuit of both production and flexibility. Looking at the F/OSS space led me to OpenEBS ZFS LocalPV with Longhorn on top, and here's why.
I finish up the benchmarking process, and share the results. If you want to find what I actually end up using, the answer is in here!
I describe in detail the YAML and Makefile scripts that power the fio and pgbench based tests that will run on every storage provider I managed to set up
I install even more storage providers -- this time OpenEBS cStor, Jiva, LocalPV hostPath, LocalPV ZFS and LINSTOR
I start installing storage plugins, this time Rook (Ceph) -- which takes a while -- and OpenEBS Mayastor. Read this if you want to read a feel-good underdog system administration story.
Part 1 of my second crack at benchmarking storage providers that scale from hobbyist to enterprise. In this post I go over the setup (the code isn't public just yet) of the dedicated servers I'll be using
