Ceph Distributed Storage Fundamentals
About This Course
The Ceph Distributed Storage Fundamentals module is our technical deep dive into the Ceph distributed storage platform. This course is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of Ceph’s architecture, design, and implementation.
This course contains a total of 27 lessons including 12 hands-on labs. You can expect to spend about 30-60 minutes on each lesson.
We provide all our courses as monthly course runs to ensure that the course content and labs are continually updated, and constantly quality checked. When you purchase a course seat, you will be automatically invited to the current course run, i.e., the June course run, July course run, etc., regardless of when you make your purchase.
Much like a printed book, the course content will remain available in your Cleura Cloud Academy account, but your access to labs expires on the 7:th of the following month, i.e. July 7 for the June course run, August 7 for the July course run, etc.
Please plan your seat purchase to ensure that you have enough time to complete the course and labs before access to the labs expires.
At the end of the class 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.
