Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125)

This course supports you in providing unified storage for enterprise servers and Red Hat® OpenStack Platform with Red Hat Ceph Storage. Learn to use a Ceph storage cluster to provide servers and cloud resources with object storage compatible with the Amazon S3 or OpenStack Swift APIs, Ceph-native or iSCSI-based block storage, and file storage using CephFS.

This course is for you if you are a storage administrator or cloud operator who intends to deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage to your production data center environment or OpenStack installation.

    Course Details

    Course Outline

    1 - Prepare for Red Hat Ceph Storage
  • Identify challenges faced by traditional storage and explain how Ceph addresses them.
  • 2 - Deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage
  • Deploy and expand the storage capacity of a new Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster.
  • 3 - Configure Red Hat Ceph Storage
  • Manage how Ceph stores data with pools, configure Red Hat Ceph Storage using its configuration file, and configure users for Ceph clients that may access the Ceph storage cluster.
  • 4 - Provide block storage with RBD
  • Configure Ceph to provide block storage for clients by using RADOS block devices (RBDs).
  • 5 - Provide object storage with RADOSGW
  • Configure Ceph to provide object storage for clients by using a RADOS gateway (RADOSGW or RGW).
  • 6 - Provide file storage with CephFS
  • Configure Ceph to provide file storage for clients using the Ceph Filesystem (CephFS).
  • 7 - Configure the CRUSH map
  • Adjust the CRUSH map—which controls how data is stored, replicated, and distributed across OSDs in the Ceph cluster—in order to optimize resiliency and performance.
  • 8 - Manage and update the cluster maps
  • Explain how the monitor and OSD maps are managed in order to maintain cluster operation, quorum, and consistency.
  • 9 - Manage a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster
  • Check Ceph cluster status, troubleshoot Ceph daemon problems, and upgrade Ceph software.
  • 10 - Tune and troubleshoot Red Hat Ceph Storage
  • Identify the key performance metrics for a Ceph cluster and use them to help tune and troubleshoot the operating system and Ceph software for optimal performance.
  • 11 - Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with OpenStack
  • Configure an OpenStack cloud to use Ceph to provide image, block, object, and file storage.
