Full Rack Integrated Solutions and order SKUs:

Networking – 10G networking is used for client connections to the Storage. A separate backend connection is used to support replication in write intensive environments

Monitor Nodes – 3x nodes are used for maximum resiliency and availability to the cluster

OSD Nodes – Data/objects are stored on the Object Storage Daemon Nodes. Erasure coded deployments offer better network efficiency but may require more powerful CPU to maintain performance
