Ceph is super hot. When people tell me that storage can’t be sexy, I can’t help but feel like Ceph can be! I was out in our L.A. office last week, and the first thing I saw when I showed up was this: A Ceph fanboy working with a multi-petabyte deployment of Ceph decided to […]

Now that the Ceph project has moved to a regular release schedule we are trying to be more transparent about the planning process.

Most notably, there was a problem with pool names with – and _ that OpenStack users were hitting, and memory usage by ceph-osd and other daemons due to the trimming of in-memory logs.
