Publications

Ceph has grown out of the petabyte-scale storage research at the Storage Systems Research Center at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The project was funded primarily by a grant from the Lawrence Livermove, Sandia, and Los Alamos National Laboratories. A range of publications related to scalable storage systems have resulted.

The following publications are directly related to the current design of Ceph.
