Ceph provides a resilient and scalable storage model (RADOS) using clusters of commodity hardware. Along with the RADOS block device (RBD), and the RADOS object gateway (RGW), Ceph also provides a POSIX filesystem interface (Ceph FS). While RBD and RGW have been in use for production workloads for some time, efforts to make Ceph FS ready for production are now underway.
This presentation will introduce Ceph FS, explain its architecture, and provide an update on the latest development and testing work being done improve stability and manageability of the filesystem. http://ceph.com/
