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
