    Ceph Mania

    Ceph support in OpenNebula 4.0

    The Ceph team has been extremely blessed with the number of new people who choose to become involved with our community in some way. Even more exciting are the sheer numbers of people committing code and integration work, and the folks from OpenNebula are a great example of this in action. At the end of […]

    Ceph Settles in to Aggressive Release Cadence

    Since its inception, Ceph has always had a fast-paced rolling release tempo. However, with the amount of adoption that Ceph has had over the last year (including continued integration work with several other open source projects), we wanted to move to a more reliable, and predictable, release schedule. The release schedule can be divided into […]

    Hi! From February 13-18, we ran our very first Ceph Census. The purpose of this survey was to get a sense of how many Ceph clusters are out there, what they are used for, and which technologies they are used alongside.

    Deploying Ceph with ComodIT

    At this year’s Cloud Expo Europe I had a nice chat with the guys from ComodIT who are making some interesting deployment and orchestration tools. They were kind enough to include their work in a blog post earlier this week and give me permission to replicate it here for your consumption. As always, if any […]
