So I know we've heard quite a few storage related talks, and it got me thinking. We should really have another storage talk!
Really though I feel previous talks weren't really coming from an admin's heart. This talk is going to be a real treat for the people in audience finding themselves figuring out a storage solution that's right for their OpenStack environment.
DreamHost Senior Systems Engineer Kyle Bader, has been maintaining a huge Ceph storage cluster for DreamHost's DreamCompute and DreamObjects products. Hear the honest pain points, and get valuable tips from Kyle's journey of different storage solutions he has worked with in large deployments.
OpenStack provides several storage abstractions in the form of Swift for object and Cinder for block storage. This talk will be an architectural review of OpenStack clusters that have been augmented with Ceph, both logical and physical. We'll dive in and talk about how storage servers should be composed, how to build large scale storage networks, Ceph integration and Ceph operations.
