Optimize your Ceph object storage cluster for success in production clouds

Today, more than 60% of data storage involves unstructured data—including images, video, audio, and other types of data. The Ceph® object gateway provides an object storage solution with S3 and Swift APIs that is ideal for storing unstructured data in multisite and hybrid cloud storage scenarios, scaling up to petabytes and beyond.

In this webinar, we'll look at:

  • Sizing a Ceph object gateway cluster, identifying performance requirements, identifying suitable hardware, and configuring storage policies with varying performance characteristics.
  • Erasure coding, compression, bucket index sharding, and integration with OpenStack®.
  • Fail-over and recovery options such as RGW (the S3/Swift gateway component of Ceph) multisite deployments.
