Please, don't use consumer ssd for ceph journal, they sucks (very) for D_SYNC writes

Can't say I saw that on our cluster. 

- 3 Nodes 
- 3 OSD's per Node 
- SSD journals for each OSD. 
- 2*1G Eth in LACP Bond dedicated to Ceph 
- 1G Admin Net 
- Size = 3 (Replica 3) 

Never came close to maxing out 1 1Gbps connection, write throughput and 
IOPS are terrible. Read is pretty good though. 

Currently trialing Gluster 3.7.11 on ZFS Bricks, Replica 3 also. Triple 
the throughput ans IOPS I was getting with Ceph, maxes out the 2*1G 
connection, also seems to deal with VM I/O spikes better too, not 
letting other VM's be stalled. 

Not convinced its as robust as Ceph yet, give it a few more weeks. It 
does cope very well with failover and brick heals (using 64MB shards).
