CEPH on ARM Cluster Performance explained at OpenStack Boston Summit
Traditional server architecture is not a perfect fit for distributed storage because network is usually saturated with low CPU utility. And using virtual machine or multi-daemons carries the risk of multiple lost storage devices when a single server fails. Ambedded aims to address those problems with its microserver architecture designed for distributed storage and optimizing Ceph performance with this 1-to-1 architecture.
