Pros
"I find its flexibility valuable."

More Caringo Swarm Pros →

"I like the distributed and self-healing nature of the product.""It's a very performance-intensive, brilliant storage system, and I always recommend it to customers based on its benefits, performance, and scalability.""What I found most valuable from Red Hat Ceph Storage is integration because if you are talking about a solution that consists purely of Red Hat products, this is where integration benefits come in. In particular, Red Hat Ceph Storage becomes a single solution for managing the entire environment in terms of the container or the infrastructure, or the worker nodes because it all comes from a single plug.""Red Hat Ceph Storage is a reliable solution, it works well."

Cons
"The pricing can definitely be better."

More Caringo Swarm Cons →

"An area for improvement would be that it's pretty difficult to manage synchronous replication over multiple regions.""The product lacks RDMA support for inter-OSD communication.""What could be improved in Red Hat Ceph Storage is its user interface or GUI.""It took me a long time to get the storage drivers for the communication with Kubernetes up and running. The documentation could improve it is lacking information. I'm not sure if this is a Ceph problem or if Ceph should address this, but it was something I ran into. Additionally, there is a performance issue I am having that I am looking into, but overall I am satisfied with the performance."
