"Ceph Lords" San Francisco Stackers Free Event!

6:30pm, Thursday, February 2nd, 2012
DreamHost’s new San Francisco office, 221 Pine St, 2nd Floor

Facilitated by Piston Cloud, the enterprise OpenStack company,
Hosted by DreamHost, the leading web hosting provider & creators of Ceph,,
Magnolia Pub & Brewery
is donating a keg of Kalifornia Kolsch!
DreamHost has arranged a taco bar.

We started the year off with a tour of a few topics. For this month’s event, we’re zooming in on one topic, Ceph. Ceph is a distributed network storage and file system which, in our case, can be used for OpenStack block storage or as a drop-in replacement for the Swift object store.


6:30pm - Food, Drink, & Networking

7:15 - Welcome

7:25 - "Introduction to Ceph and DreamHost's Object Service Deployment", Team Ceph.

Ben Cherian, Emerging Technologies General Manager at DreamHost, will start us off; Tommi Virtanen, Senior File Systems Engineer, will provide the technical perspective; and Carl Perry, Cloud Architect, will bring us home with insights into Ceph in production at DreamHost.

8:15 - Intermission

8:30 - "OpenStack Block Storage with Ceph", Christopher MacGown, Co-Founder and CTO of Piston Cloud Computing.

9:15 - Sessions are complete. More networking.

    Overall very good meeting: good topics, good opportunities to mingle and chat about both technical and business aspects. Well put together. And let's not forget the beer and great Mexican food. Nice job!

    For the most part it was way over my head. But the presenters were very entertaining and engaging. It would have been five stars if I was more knowledgeable going into it. The food was great!

    Hand stands on the keg automatically make this event worthy of 5 stars

    I?m excited to share that our neighbor and favorite watering hole Magnolia Pub & Brewery is donating a keg of their craft brew Kalifornia Kolsch! This will beautifully compliment the taco bar that DreamHost has arranged.

    Magnolia is going to be bumping in February with strong beer month!
