OpenStack Fundamentals: Ceph: Distributed Storage for the Cloud

Ceph: Distributed Storage for the Cloud

Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. With an advanced placement algorithm, active storage nodes, and peer-to-peer gossip protocols, Ceph scales from terabytes to exabytes with no single point of failure. Through native integrations with OpenStack and Apache CloudStack, Ceph provides a complete object and block storage solution for cloud data. Instead of using scale-up storage appliances, Ceph is a software solution that works on commodity hardware.

In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Greg Farnum, a Software Developer at Inktank, will discuss the Ceph architecture, its current status, and plans for future development. Attendees will also learn how Ceph integrates with major cloud platforms to provide storage for public and private cloud deployments.
