Wicked Easy Ceph Block Storage & OpenStack Deployment with Crowbar

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

Inktank Ceph is a transformational open source storage solution fully integrated into OpenStack providing scalable object and block storage (via Cinder) using commodity servers. The Ceph solution is resilient to failures, uses storage efficiently, and performs well under a variety of VM Workloads.

Dell Crowbar is an open source software framework that can automatically deploy Ceph and OpenStack on bare metal servers in a matter of hours. The Ceph team worked with Dell to create a Ceph barclamp (a crowbar extention) that integrates Glance, Cinder, and Nova-Volume. As a result, it is lot faster and easier to install, configure, and manage a sizable OpenStack and Ceph cluster that is tightly integrated and cost- optimized.

Hear how OpenStack users can address their storage deployment challenges:

Considerations when selecting a cloud storage system
Overview of the Ceph architecture with unique features and benefits
Overview of Dell Crowbar and how it can automate and simplify Ceph/OpenStack deployments Best practices in deploying cloud storage with Ceph and OpenStack

Co-presented by Kamesh Pemmaraju, Product Manager from Dell and Miroslav Klivansky, Technical Marketing Engineer from Inktank.
