Architecting Block and Object Geo-Replication Solutions with Ceph - Sage Weil, Inktank

Ceph is a fully open source distributed object store, network block device, and file system designed for reliability, performance, and scalability from terabytes to exabytes. For many organizations, storage systems that span multiple data centers and geographies for disaster recovery or follow-the-sun purposes are an important requirement. This talk will give a brief overview of the Ceph architecture, and then focus on the design and implementation of asynchronous geo-replication and disaster recovery features for the RESTful object storage layer, the RBD block service, and Ceph's underlying distributed object store, RADOS. The fundamental requirements for a robust georeplication solution (like point in time consistency) and the differing requirements for each storage use-case and API and the implications for the asynchronous replication strategy will be discussed.

CTO, Inktank
Sage Weil is the creator of the Ceph project. Sage originally designed Ceph as part of his PhD research in Storage Systems at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Since graduating, he has continued to refine the system with the goal of providing a stable next generation distributed... Read More →
