OpenStack Northwest User Group Meetup: OpenStack + Ceph = A match made in heaven

Jama South
334 NW 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



You don't get too many second chances in life, but if you missed Ian Colle's presentation in Denver this February, and you happen to be in Portland on March 20th, then you're in luck.

Ian is the Director of Engineering at Inktank, the company delivering Inktank Ceph Enterprise. He will be flying over to discuss Ceph integration with OpenStack at a deep technical level, and also for the beer.

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. Ceph offers a Swift and S3-compatible REST API for seamless data access, a network block device for large images or volumes, and native support for Qemu/KVM, libvirt, CloudStack, and OpenStack which makes it quite a versatile storage platform. Join us for a walkthrough of the Ceph architecture, its current status, how it integrates with OpenStack, and plans for future development.

Prior to Inktank, Ian held positions in Intel’s High Performance Data Division and Whamcloud’s High Performance Computing team. He is an avid trail runner who thinks running up the sides of mountains is an enjoyable way to exercise.

Please RSVP so we can ensure food and drinks are adequate.

See you then.
