Remember When We Destroyed Our Ceph Cluster?

If you have been following 45Drives for a while -  you may remember a video called "Trying to destroy a clustered volume during a file transfer." In that video, our lead engineer attempted to take down a Gluster Cluster by doing everything possible to fail the cluster during a transfer  —  to show the resilience of a Gluster Cluster. 

No, this is not about promoting an old video — although that video is great, you can check it out here 😉. However, because we now work primarily with Ceph, and that's what our clustered solution is running here at 45Drives, we thought it was time to redo the video! 

So without further adieu — please enjoy this video of our lead engineer, Brett Kelly, taking down our 45Drives clustered solution.

Let's Talk About 45Drives

Protocase, Backblaze, and direct-wired architecture - oh my!

Before 45Drives became its own company, its sister company, Protocase, began working with Backblaze, a cloud storage provider. Backblaze prototyped a large, wooden open design storage pod and engaged the services of Protocase to help bring their concept to reality. As a result, they had a functioning storage pod made from cold-rolled steel ready for their data centers within a year.

But, how did 45Drives come to be? Read the full story below!
