Use Cases for RADOS Block Device (RBD) storage

Many businesses will have a need for storage based in the cloud. The only question that remains is WHY haven't they moved their storage requirements to the cloud?

Big Data and Analytics

RBD can be used to store large amounts of data for big data and analytics workloads

Backup Storage

If you are running a customer backup script or backup software that requires scalable storage, RBD allows you to map a folder to allow scalable storage to meet your needs.

Cloud-Native Applications

RBD can be used to provide storage for cloud-native applications, such as Kubernetes, that need persistent storage for their stateful workloads

Choosing the right Cloud Storage

Choosing the right cloud storage can be difficult and is one of the most important decisions a business can make when moving to the cloud.
