Ceph is an open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability. It runs on commodity hardware, has no single point of failure, and is supported in the Linux kernel.
This talk is a follow up of a previous talk for OpenStackGDL "Introduction to Ceph and architectural overview" by Federico Lucifredi. Look for the previous slides on: http://openstackgdl.org/
Federico Lucifredi is the Ceph Product Management Director at Red Hat, and was previously the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux "Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.
