Talking Storage: Ceph, Swift, Gluster, Architecture and Scaling

What are the emerging architectural best practices for storage in a cloud? Does mixing compute and storage scale or should storage be its own tier? How about on-ramps for traditional enterprise IT storage teams to take advantage of new scale-out storage systems?

A panel with serious chops in Ceph, Swift and Gluster will be on hand to talk about features that are driving adoption, use cases, and how devs in the communtiy can participate.

Speakers include:
Sean Roberts, Yahoo! (moderator)
John Dickinson, SwiftStack
Joseph Glanville, Cloudscaling
Anand Avati, Red Hat (Gluster community)
Neil Levine, Inktank

We'll have food and drink, so arrive by 6:30 to get settled, and we'll start the program at 7pm.

      Also...note that the SF Giants play tonight...so there will be some additional traffic if you're coming in via 280 and getting off at 6th or King Streets.

    Sadly I have to miss this - it sounds like it will be super informative. If anyone has any questions about Zadara Storage (Enterprise Storage as a Service, built on OpenStack, for OpenStack) you know where to find me: [masked] @NoamShen

  • David H.

    I cannot attend but am wondering where would be a good place to discuss the merits of mixing the storage and compute tiers using ceph for swift, glance, and cinder?

    Sounds like a great session, but it conflicts with the Software Defined Data Center Symposium (all day at the Techmart).
