Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability from terabytes to exabytes.The storage system is self managing and self healing which means reduced system administration. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, leverages an intelligent storage node system and is open source.

This proposal is directed at an intermediate technical audience. This talk will describe the Ceph architecture and then focus on the current status and future of the project. This will include a discussion of Ceph's relationship with local filesystems (like btrfs, xfs, and ext4), the file system and RBD clients in the Linux kernel, RBD support for virtual block devices in Qemu/KVM and libvirt, and current engineering challenges.


Sage Weil, Inktank/Ceph

Sage Weil 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 file system for Linux. Prior to his graduate... Read More →
