Ceph Days

Join the expert Ceph team, Ceph’s customers and partners, and the Ceph community as we discuss how Ceph, the massively scalable, open source, software-defined storage system, can radically improve the economics and management of data storage for your enterprise.

See Upcoming Ceph Days


Cephalocon aims to bring together technologists and adopters from across the globe to showcase Ceph’s history and its future, demonstrate real-world applications, and highlight vendor solutions.



The Ceph Open Source project is governed by a group of individuals and organizations that are making large commitments and long-term strategic bets on Ceph. Announced in December 2018, this initiative serves to increase contributions and streamline participation through the leadership, mentoring, and assistance of our board members.

Ceph Developer Monthly (CDM)

Every month, Ceph developers gather online to discuss the current work related to Ceph. If you are interested in what work is being done, have work you are hoping to commit, or would like to get more involved in the development of Ceph, please join us for our next meeting. These meetings alternate each month between a US/EMEA-friendly time and an APAC-friendly time, in order to accommodate all of our global Ceph developers. We look forward to seeing you!
