Summary

Distributed object store and file system

Abstract

Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, and is supported in the Linux kernel.

This talk will describe the Ceph architecture, share its design principles, and discuss how it can be part of a cost-effective, reliable cloud stack.

The de-facto standard for OpenStack storage, Ceph is leading the rising tide of Software-defined-Storage.
