Our First Webinar – Getting Started With Ceph


Yesterday was another milestone for our Inktank scrapbook. We hosted our first webinar titled “Getting Started with Ceph”. Our technical marketing engineer/overall nice guy @klivansky presented the webinar, which lasted one hour and covered the basics of getting setup with Ceph.

He covered…

  • An introduction into Ceph and Inktank

  • A description of the Ceph architecture and key components

  • The steps of setting up a virtualized Ceph cluster, which included:

  • Creating a VirtualBox

  • Preparing the VMs for creating the Ceph cluster

  • Installing Ceph on all VMs from the client

  • Configuring Ceph on all the server nodes and the client

  • Experimenting with Ceph’s Virtual Block Device (RBD)

  • Experimenting with the Ceph distributed filesystem

  • Unmounting, stopping Ceph, and shuting down the VMs safely
