First China Ceph Day – Beijing Ceph Day

Ceph is becoming more and more popular in China. Intel and Redhat jointly held the Beijing Ceph Day in Intel RYC office on June 6th, 2015. It attracted ~200 developers, end users from 120+ companies. Ten technical sessions were delivered to share Ceph’s transformative power during the event, it also focused on current problems of […]

Incomplete PGs — OH MY!

I recently had the opportunity to work on a Firefly cluster (0.80.8) in which power outages caused a failure of two OSDs. As with lots of things in technology, that’s not the whole story. The manner in which the power outages and OSD failures occurred put the cluster into a state with 5 placement groups […]

Ceph Developer Summit: Infernalis

Hey Cephers, it’s that time again…time for another Ceph Developer Summit! As Hammer winds its way through the maze of QA and release procedures we need to start looking forward to what will come with Infernalis (which is a cool lookin’ squid if you haven’t seen it yet). Blueprint submissions are now open for any […]

Support the Ada Initiative: half way there!

A few days ago I made a challenge to the open storage community to support the Ada Initiative‘s work to improve gender diversity in open source and open data communities, and offered to match contributions if we can reach $8192.  I’m pleased to say that the response so far has been great, and we’re now […]

Support the Ada Initiative: a challenge to the open storage community

I’d like to take a moment away from your regularly scheduled storage revolution to talk about the Ada Initiative: who they are, what they do, and why it is important to open source storage communities. I’m also going to challenge you to raise $8192 for them, and I’ll match that dollar for dollar if you do. […]

Lots Going on with Ceph

While we knew that after the acquisition of Inktank life would accelerate again, it seems like the Ceph community is quickly approaching ludicrous speed, and it shows no sign of slowing down. We have had some amazing participation in the various endeavors, but it would be completely understandable if you had missed something amidst the […]

Ceph Developer Summit: G/H

Hard to believe another quarter has gone by in the world of Ceph development! So much has happened with the release of Firefly (late, but well worth the wait!), another smashing OpenStack Developer Summit, and of course the acquisition of Inktank. As the dust settles from all of the hustle and bustle we’re looking to […]

Ceph Calamari Goes Open Source

Today Red Hat is following through on one of my favorite promises from the acquisition: we’re open sourcing Calamari, the management platform for Ceph. Originally delivered as a proprietary dashboard included with Inktank Ceph Enterprise, Calamari has some really great visualization stuff for your cluster as well as the long term goal of being the […]
