Software defined storage of the efficient kind

Energy-saving ARM Ambedded Microservers

The performance of our Mars 400 solution from Ambedded is the result of a clever combination of its three main components: The innovative unified storage solution Ceph, the eight extremely economical microservers integrated in a 1U appliance and finally the intuitive interface called Unified Virtual Storage Manager (UVS).

Ceph retains the patronage over it and organizes the redundant storage of the valuable data as a distributed open source SDS system with access to object, block and file storage. The innovative architecture of the Mars 400, with its economical, passively cooled ARM processors, ensures an exceptionally low energy requirement. Our highly available cluster trio – consisting of three 1U appliances, 24 SSDs and 21 high-capacity HDDs – requires less than 400 watts of power.

  • Passive cooled dual or quad core ARM CPUs
  • Eight microservers per 1U appliance
  • Three appliances already form an HA cluster
  • HA cluster already from 300 Watt power

HA cluster set up in no time

Intuitively operated and quickly installed

The Unified Virtual Storage Manager (UVS) helps in the shallows of the Ceph installation with its simple and clear operation. OSDs, monitors, CRUSH maps, RADOS gateways or iSCSI targets can be configured quickly. The intuitive graphical management interface allows even inexperienced users to create a cluster within 30 minutes. In the so-called dashboard, the administrator assigns virtual memory to Fast and also manages user keys, for example.

  • Easy installation
  • Intuitive user interface
  • All OSDs and MONs at a glance
  • Significant time saving

This proven expert for Linux and Ceph platforms joined Starline in 2018. His preference is for sophisticated open source solutions and tricky product developments. Therefore, he is also available for enquiries regarding PetaSAN and TrueNAS (formerly FreeNAS). But he also likes ARM servers from Ambedded or Mac operating systems. In his private life, the engineer enjoys working with 3D printers and robots.
