Supporting Highly Transactional and Low Latency Workloads on Ceph

Ceph has historically been challenged by transactional workloads requiring Iow latencies in the sub 10ms range.  This has excluded Ceph RBD from a whole class of applications and limited its adoption in the enterprise.   New technologies like RDMA, NVMe and 3D XPoint have emerged in the last few years that are having a significant impact on Ceph by enabling deterministic, low latency (sub 10ms) performance.  In this talk we explore these technologies, demonstrating how they can be used in a Ceph Luminous Cluster to deliver groundbreaking performance, opening whole new classes of workloads to the Ceph ecosystem.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will expect to learn various approaches to configuring all-flash Ceph clusters to provide low latency and deterministic performance.
