Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability from terabytes to exabytes. Ceph utilizes a novel placement algorithm (CRUSH), active storage nodes, and peer-to-peer gossip protocols to avoid the scalability and reliability problems associated with centralized controllers and lookup tables.
The community has been very active integrating Ceph into OpenStack. This is getting better each release.
With Juno we reached a critical step in terms of feature, robustness and stability. Kilo is even better, and Liberty is promising but we are not done yet.
In this session, Sebastien Han and Josh Durgin from Red Hat will describe the current state of the integration of Ceph into OpenStack and where are we heading to in terms of roadmap. They will go through all the OpenStack projects.
