At Bloomberg, we are rolling out a highly-available private cloud infrastructure based upon OpenStack and many other open-source technologies. One of our explicit goals is to have a self-contained highly-scalable storage system that utilizes commodity compute, storage, and network infrastructure. While our primary distributed storage system utilizes Ceph, there is a need for a secondary cold storage system that offers long-term storage combining open-source software and low-cost hardware solutions. SageCloud’s offering has provided us with a starting point to address that need.
