In follow-up to a post from 2013, and earlier this year, I’ve been working on a pointy-clicky deployable MooseFS+ownCloud atop encrypted file systems environment you can rent/buy as a service from my company.
As promised, some follow-up to OLF.
In short, MooseFS provides better configurability than either Ceph or GlusterFS, runs with lower overhead, and provides more flexibility for their environment.
One of the other cool things Chris said was they adopted the BackBlaze StoragePod design for their “green monster” storage units. Nice to see open source being leveraged not just in software, but hardware, too 🙂
