Collaborative, we started our S3 object storage design using Ceph together with four other partners (DUE, RUB, TU Dortmund, Univ. of Cologne), to build a disaster resilient storage. Since this was our first contact with this technology, our primary intention was to enable stakeholders to outline their needs in reliable metrics.

During the process, we added NAS storage resources. We did several setups, resulting in poor performance. Now are evaluating iSCSI gateway and Windows fileservers.

We developed compliance guidelines to ensure prompt delivery and availability within high-security standards and minimized costs.

These focus on:
Resiliency, by geo distributed setup
Efficiency, by erasure coding
Security, via automated testing and patching
Compliance and reduction of (human) workload, by automation and continuous delivery
High availability, by eliminating any single point of failure
