Everyone needs storage, but Open Source is changing how we think about storage infrastructure through new features, added durability, and reduced cost. New storage solutions like Ceph are providing distributed, flexible, powerful options that can support a myriad of use cases across object, block, and file system applications. This talk will explore the history and basics of Ceph, the current status of the community, and where the project is headed in the near future.
