Ceph and Cloudstack: Integrating the Ceph Block Device into your Cloudstack Deployment

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Not too long ago the idea of an open source solution competing with proprietary storage products was laughable. But today, many enterprises are realizing that the incredibly expensive and closed nature of existing storage giants is making the market ripe for an open source storage technology like Ceph to rise to dominance.

While Ceph has certainly become a favorite for cloud implementers world wide, there are still some questions about the Ceph architecture and how it integrates with CloudStack. In this talk, you’ll learn how to take advantage of features such as thin provisioning, snapshotting, cloning, and more by integrating Ceph’s Block Device with CloudStack to provide a back end for your primary storage. This presentation will equip Cloudstack architects and administrators with the knowledge necessary to integrate Ceph into a new or existing Cloudstack implementation. 

The audience is anyone interested in configuring Ceph and Cloudstack to work together. Attendees can expect a reference architecture and directions for implementing Ceph in their Cloudstack deployment.
