The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The world runs on open infrastructure. At the OpenStack Summit, you’ll learn about the mix of open technologies building the modern infrastructure stack, including OpenStack, Kubernetes, Docker, Ansible, Ceph, OVS, OpenContrail, OPNFV, and more. Whether you are pursuing a private, public or multi-cloud approach, the OpenStack Summit is the place to network, skill up and plan your cloud strategy.

Ceph, Now and Later: Our Plan for Open Unified Cloud Storage

Ceph is a highly scalable open source distributed storage system that provides object, block, and file interfaces on a single platform.  Although Ceph RBD block storage has dominated OpenStack deployments for several years, maturing object (S3, Swift, and librados) interfaces and stable CephFS (file) interfaces now make Ceph the only fully open source unified storage platform.

This talk will cover Ceph's architectural vision and project mission and how our approach differs from alternative approaches to storage in the OpenStack ecosystem.  In particular, we will look at how our open development model dovetails well with OpenStack, how major contributors are advancing Ceph capabilities and performance at a rapid pace to adapt to new hardware types and deployment models, and what major features we are priotizing for the next few years to meet the needs of expanding cloud workloads.


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will learn about the current state of Ceph development, including the latest features and OpenStack integrations, and what our vision is over the next few years to address new and emerging storage requirements in the cloud. Attendees should also come away with an understanding of what Ceph *isn't* trying to do.

Sage originally designed Ceph as part of his PhD research in Storage Systems at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Since graduating, he has continued to refine the system with the goal of providing a stable next generation distributed storage system for Linux. FULL PROFILE
