More Ceph capacity for the Flexible Compute Environment

Following the success stories from our @scale customers, we have been asked to provide an additional 1PB of usable capacity for our internal flexible compute environment.

The order has been placed and we expect BIOS-IT to have the hardware on site and acceptance tested but the end of September 2017.

We continue to be impressed by the resilience of both the Ceph and S3 services the the current platform has provided since Jan 2017 and we look forward to seeing the performance of the infrastructure continue to scale as additional units are added.
