The Ceph Book

About the Book

Ceph is a unified, distributed storage system designed for excellent performance, reliability and scalability. This book helps those who want to master ceph storage.

The book begins with ceph storage cluster architecture, like describing ceph monitor, osd daemon and manager. I cover in the book how to deploy ceph cluster using ansible to demonstrate Red Hat latest ceph version and the community version.

All labs in the book are tested and well explained with the latest version "luminous" as of writing.
