Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. With an advanced placement algorithm, active storage nodes, and peer-to-peer gossip protocols, Ceph scales from terabytes to exabytes with no single point of failure. Through native integrations with OpenStack and Apache CloudStack, Ceph provides a complete object and block storage solution for cloud data. Instead of using scale-up storage appliances, Ceph is a software solution that works on commodity hardware.
In his session at the 13th International Cloud Expo®, Greg Farnum, a Software Developer at Inktank, will discuss the Ceph architecture, its current status, and plans for future development. Attendees will also learn how Ceph integrates with major cloud platforms to provide storage for public and private cloud deployments.
Greg Farnum is one of the core engineers on the Ceph open source storage project. He has been working on Ceph since he graduated from Harvey Mudd College in 2009. He is passionate about solving problems in distributed computing. Ceph is a distributed object store and file system designed to provide excellent performance, reliability and scalability. Greg has also interacted with other open source projects, including Hadoop, Hypertable, the Linux Kernel, and Crowbar, in his work on Ceph.
