SKU: cc213




Course Description

This Ceph training course contains a total of 27 lessons including 12 hands-on labs. You can expect to spend about 30-60 minutes on each lesson.

At the end of our Ceph training course you will:

  • Know and understand the design and architecture of the Ceph platform;
  • Understand the relative strengths and weaknesses, stability, and suitability for production of various Ceph components;
  • Be able to design and deploy a Ceph cluster in a production environment;
  • Understand the Ceph object store (RADOS), RADOS Block Device (RBD), the Ceph filesystem (CephFS), and RADOS Gateway (RGW) for ReSTful object access.

In the interactive labs, you will use the ceph-ansible deployment method and the Ceph 15.2 Octopus release, including the Ceph web dashboard. You will also learn how to initially install your cluster with the long-running stable FileStore storage implementation, and then convert it online to the advanced high-performance BlueStore backend, before moving on to Cephadm, Ceph Pacific, and ultimately Ceph Quincy.
