Abstract: 

Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. These services are unified into a single system through Ceph's underlying distributed object store, RADOS. Not only does RADOS abstract the physical storage hardware, its unique software-defined architecture allows it to control the appropriate level of reliability and performance for various storage services. This talk will discuss some approaches that can be used with Ceph to address enterprise storage requirements.
