OpenStack supports a variety of storage services delivered via a flexible and modular framework. Ceph is a software-defined, self-healing, scale-out storage platform that delivers block and object storage, that now fully supports file services. Come and learn the what and why of CephFS and how it delivers a resilient, scale-out POSIX filesystem with independently scalable metadata. Learn where CephFS fits best, including high-performance computing (HPC), metadata-intensive workloads, Storage-as-a-Service (SaaS), and most interestingly, OpenStack’s Manila via Ganesha network file system (NFS). We’ll share what’s currently available as well as a look into the very near future to show you how you can support a fully featured storage service to your OpenStack users and developers.
Learn how to deploy Ceph with CephFS and integrate it into OpenStack to deliver a scalable and resilient File as a Service offering via Manila to your OpenStack users and developers. Also get to know the future plans for the CephFS/Manila integration.
