Storage is evolving and one area of growth is the approach of software-defined storage solutions that look to deliver persistent storage for container-based application infrastructure.
- This Performance Benchmarking Report evaluates four leading Kubernetes-based cloud native storage solutions - Ondat, OpenEBS, Longhorn, Rook/Ceph.
- The report documents a series of tests that aim to highlight the differences in performance between cloud native storage solutions with respect to standard I/O profiles.
- Testing was performed using a pre-determined hardware and software configuration that is consistent for each platform.
- The tests demonstrate the capabilities of each software platform and how they exploit local resources such as system memory, while mitigating the overhead of networking and maintaining data protection.
