Ceph is an open source software-defined storage solution designed to address the block, file and object storage needs of modern enterprises. Its highly scalable architecture sees it being adopted as the new norm for high-growth block storage, object stores, and data lakes. Ceph provides reliable and scalable storage while keeping CAPEX and OPEX costs in line with underlying commodity hardware prices.
In this article we will discuss how to check the performance of a disk or storage array in Linux. IOPS (input/output operations per second) is the number of input-output operations a data storage system performs per second (it may be a single disk, a RAID array or a LUN in an external storage device). In general, IOPS refers to the number of blocks that can be read from or written to a media.
