DreamHost Case Study: DreamObjects with Ceph

Selecting Ceph, the revolutionary open source, massively scalable, distributed storage system and partnering with Inktank allowed DreamHost to successfully launch DreamObjects. DreamObjects is powered by Ceph to provide inexpensive, scalable object storage service that was developed from the ground up to provide a reliable, flexible cloud storage solution for entrepreneurs and developers.
As an open source project, Ceph frees DreamObjects users from the restrictions of vendor lock-in, and because it runs on top of inexpensive server hardware, Ceph drove down DreamHost’s cost per gigabyte, which translates to big savings for their customers. By leveraging the massively scalable open source Ceph storage technology, DreamHost is able to innovate cloud storage and compete with the industry giants
This webinar will discuss best practices and lessons learned in creating DreamObjects, including the need to manage scale, speed, monitoring, uptime, security and cost.

  • What's new in Red Hat's Inktank Ceph Enterprise 1.2? Recorded: Jul 30 2014 56 mins
    Neil Levine, Director of Product Management, Red Hat
    Red Hat’s Inktank Ceph Enterprise 1.2 is the solution. Join our free webinar Wednesday, July 30, and learn how this new release couples a slate of powerful features with the tools needed to confidently run production Ceph clusters at scale to deliver new levels of flexibility and cost advantages for enterprises like yours, ones seeking to store and manage the spectrum of data - from “hot” mission-critical data to “cold” archival data.

  • Deploying Ceph with ceph-deploy Recorded: Jun 27 2013 38 mins
    Ross Turk, VP, Community
    Ceph is a big system with lots of moving parts, and getting all of the pieces to fit together can be a chore without good tools. Thankfully, there's a new Ceph tool in town: ceph-deploy!

    The ceph-deploy tool allows you to install Ceph packages on remote hosts, initialize a cluster, add and remove nodes, and tear everything down again. It was written with automation in mind, so it's easy to script.

    During this session, we will create a small Ceph cluster using ceph-deploy on virtual machines. If you'd like to follow along yourself, come with a few fresh Ubuntu server VMs - chances are good that you'll leave the room with a running cluster!
  • What’s New In The Ceph Cuttlefish Release? Recorded: Jun 13 2013 42 mins
    Neil Levine, VP, Product Management, Inktank
    Last month was another milestone for Ceph with the release of Cuttlefish (v0.61), the third stable release of Ceph. Inktank’s development efforts for the Cuttlefish release have been focused around Red Hat support and making it easier to install and configure Ceph while improving the operational ease of integrating with 3rd party tools, such as provisioning and billing systems. As ever, there have also been a ton of new features we have added to the object and block capabilities of Ceph, as well as with the underlying storage cluster (RADOS), alongside some great contributions from the community.

    Join us for a webinar as we walk you through all the new and updated features that are included in the Ceph Cuttlefish release.

    We will cover updates in areas such as:

    •Ease of installation
    •Administrative functionality

  • Technical Deep Dive Into Ceph Object Storage Recorded: Apr 10 2013 73 mins
    Mark Kampe, VP, Engineering, Inktank
    Large-scale deployments are similar to building a house, you need a solid reliable foundation or everything will collapse around you. Ceph Object Storage is the foundation object storage layer of the Ceph storage platform. Ceph Object Storage is designed to scale out theoretically to infinity. It is self-managing, self-healing, has no single point of failure and is equipped with a unique deterministic placement algorithm designed to eliminate metadata bottlenecks and increase overall efficiency accessing data.

    Join today to learn in depth knowledge on:

    • CRUSH – The deterministic data placement algorithm of Ceph's Object Storage
    • RADOS’s intelligent nodes – each disk gains intelligence enabling peer-to-peer cooperation and information sharing
    • The Ceph cluster map, including how it's configured and maintained
    • Failure detection, recovery, and data migration in Ceph clusters
  • Ceph Unified Storage for CloudStack Recorded: Apr 4 2013 35 mins
    Wido den Hollander, Co-Founder, 42ON
    Ceph’s block device was integrated into Apache CloudStack in the 4.0 release. Ceph serves as a native block provider for images and volumes, and integrates with the virtualization infrastructure to connect the block devices to the VM’s. Unlike most storage solutions, Ceph unifies object and block storage in one unified storage solution. The Ceph fully distributed object store underneath the Ceph Block device lets you decouple your compute and storage in CloudStack and allows mobility of virtual machines across your compute cluster.
    This webinar will discuss:
    •How storage in CloudStack works
    •How to use Ceph as Primary Storage

    •How to use Ceph as Secondary Storage
  • The End of RAID as You Know it with Ceph Replication Recorded: Mar 28 2013 52 mins
    Mark Kampe, VP, Engineering, Inktank
    Imagine an entire cluster filled with commodity hardware, no RAID cards, little human intervention and faster recovery times: this is a reality with Ceph replication. Unlike traditional RAID, Ceph stripes data across an entire cluster, not just RAID sets, while keeping a mix of old and new data to prevent high traffic in replaced disks. During this webinar, we will explore:

    · How Ceph Replication Works

    · Benefits of Using Ceph Replication over traditional RAID

    · Best Practices for Implementation
