I'm in the process of completing an 8 node ScaleIO cluster (infiniband backend) for a company DR project. I'm considering doing a build thread. Would anyone be interested in seeing the setup process and benchmark data?
The point of hyper-converge is huge cost saving and simple management but from my brief reading and googling, I don't see the big cost saving. For instance, Nutanix license and blessed hardware cost A LOT!
Ceph is not hyper converged. Ceph plus KVM plus open vswitch will get you thereIt would be great if you can also disclose your thought process for why you chose ScaleIO instead of other Hyper-Converge solutions i.e. Nutanix, Ceph, vSAN, DataCore, ScaleComputing, Simplivity, etc
