Ceph blog stories provide high-level spotlights on our customers all over the world
Hey Cephers! March was a very busy month for Ceph Project that we are releasing the Newsletter on April. Besides all Mimic development tasks we had our first Cephalocon in Beijing and we have lots of cool things to share with our vibrant community on this newsletter. We hope you enjoy it!
It’s been 5 years since Ross Turk organized the Ceph Census and a lot of things changed since then. We created this survey to collect the feedback from our community and it will be accepting answers until May 15th, 2018. The results will be shared with the community on Ceph blog.
Recently, some BlueJeans video conferencing sessions used for meetings expired and we had to create new ones for the team meetings. The new conference details are available on the meeting URLs below:
We also created a Ceph calendar for the project meetings. Feel free to import it to your calendar!

The following project meetings happened on March and April, the video recordings have been uploaded to Ceph YouTube channel.
On March 22-23, 2018 the first Cephalocon in the world was successfully held in Beijing, China. During the two conference days over 1000 people including developers, users, companies, community members and other Ceph enthusiasts attended to the 52 keynotes and talks about Enterprise applications, Development, Operation and Maintenance practices. All session recordings have been uploaded to Ceph YouTube channel, the slides to Slideshare and a report is available here.
The Ceph Meetup in Santiago de Compostela, ES happened on April 4th at Amtega and it was organized by Javier Muñoz. Approximately 50 people attended to the event which had the main goal to discuss the technology and topics including Ceph adoption, hardware, use cases, features among others. Although the event had the Galician community in mind they had participants from northwest Spain (A Coruña, Lugo, Pontevedra and Ourense) and also from Belgium and Portugal.
On April 19th we joined our Apache CloudStack friends for the Ceph Day in London. The event was attended by approximately 120 people and we had 11 talks about Ceph presented by community contributors including Wido den Hollander (42on), John Spray (Red Hat), Lars Marowsky-Brée (SUSE), Kai Wagner (SUSE), Danny Al-Gaaf (Deutsche Telekom) and Nick Fisk (SysGroup PLC). Special thanks to Wido for organizing the event.
