Distributed object store and file system


      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.


     Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director 
at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux 
“Systems Management Czar” at SUSE.

Additionally Kurt Keville will give a short SC15 overview at 7:00PM
