The quickest way to get a Ceph cluster up and running is to follow the Getting Started guides.
These guides will show you how to build a working cluster, deploy gateways, and configure clients.
While there are a number of ways to install Ceph, we offer a simple installation guide for small scale clusters and proof-of-concept testing. If you would like to deploy at scale, please investigate our deployment frameworks or contact a Ceph vendor for help.
Sometimes the best way to get started with a new technology is by seeing how others have used it successfully. In this section, we try to highlight best practice implementations of Ceph Software and supporting hardware by commercial providers and experts in the field.
