Multi-Format Storage Cluster

Janus Multi-Format Storage Cluster

Get Performance, Ceph Storage, and Room to Grow

A Flexible Cluster Built for Small-Node-to-Exacscale

Many cluster deployments start with a proof-of-concept (POC) cluster. Other organizations need a smaller deployment (~50TB) they intend to scale to multiple petabytes – but the design considerations of small clusters and large ones are often contradictory. But, maybe you need a small, scalable cluster for something else? Thanks to use of Ceph software-defined-storage, you can add the Janus Multi-Format Storage Cluster to datacenters that support high-growth block storage, object stores, even file storage data lakes. And, the Janus Multi-Format Storage Cluster is designed in a modular fashion with enterprise-grade, virtualized storage, both of which make scaling easy and cost-effective but still give you the performance you need.

About Ceph

Ceph is an open-source, software-defined storage platform that provides 3-in-1 interfaces for object-, block- and file-level storage. It has no single point of failure so its scalable to the exabyte level. Ceph also features snapshot history, cloning and layering support, giving you strong disaster recovery and data redundancy protections, as well as POSIX file system semantics support.

Are you trying to create a proof-of-concept cluster that you want to deploy into production later?

Speak to an Engineer
We build each of our systems to “zero defect” standards in our U.S.-based manufacturing facilities. Then we hand-inspect every order, testing them to ensure they are 100% operational and optimized to support rapid deployment. What kind of testing? We use a suite of automated tools that simulate real world operations (including convenience and update utilities) and stress tests to validate system functionality. And, because we’re ISO 9001 certified and we’ve been in your shoes, we document the heck out of it so you can easily replicate hardware settings, firmware updates, and software versioning. Standardized installs of new systems mean efficient system deployment. We like that. We think you will too.
We offer a comprehensive 3-year warranty standard, with every system purchased. But you can add extended or custom warranties if your situation calls for it. We know you are literally curing cancer, finding water on Mars, designing airplanes that will carry thousands of people, and ensuring we have live, on-screen data about opposing players during a critical game. We don’t want you to stop working any more than you do.
We offer customer support at different levels, each based on a detailed service level agreement (SLA) that fits your needs. And, with each one, you get the added benefit of knowing that the people who take your call are in-house Silicon Mechanics’ staff whose sole focus is customer support. When we say “Expert Included,” we mean it.
