Cephfs in Jewel: Stable at Last

The Ceph upstream community is declaring CephFS stable for the first time in the recent Jewel release, but that declaration comes with caveats: while we have filesystem repair tools and a horizontally scalable POSIX filesystem, we have default-disabled exciting features like horizontally-scalable metadata servers and snapshots. This talk will present exactly what features you can expect to see, what's blocking the inclusion of other features, and what you as a user can expect and can contribute by deploying or testing CephFS.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn why they should (or shouldn’t!) choose CephFS to provide file system services to their users. They’ll learn what features are available and what ones are on the roadmap for their future planning.

Thursday, April 28, 11:00am-11:40am (4:00pm - 4:40pm UTC)
