Course Description

Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) is structured around 3 segments. The first segment is an in-depth view of the Red Hat Ceph Storage architecture and provides instructions for deploying Red Hat Ceph Storage, including the Ceph Storage Cluster, the Ceph Object Gateway, and the Ceph Block Device. The second segment focuses on day-to-day operations of a Ceph Storage cluster together with some common troubleshooting and tuning techniques that storage administrators can use to provide 24×7 availability of the storage infrastructure. The third segment covers the integration of the Ceph Storage Cluster with Glance and Cinder in Red Hat OpenStack Platform. This segment also covers configuring Red Hat Ceph Storage as a replacement for Swift and integrating it with Keystone.
