Learn to administer Red Hat Ceph Storage and integrate with Red Hat OpenStack Platform

Red Hat® Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) is designed for storage administrators and cloud operators who want to deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage into their production environment or OpenStack® environment.

This course is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux® 7, Red Hat Ceph Storage 2, and Red Hat OpenStack Platform 9.

Course overview

Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) provides an in-depth overview of the Red Hat Ceph Storage architecture and instructions on deploying Red Hat Ceph Storage, including the Ceph Storage Cluster (RADOS), the Ceph Object Gateway (RADOSGW), and the Ceph Block Device (RBD). The course also focuses on the day-to-day operation of a Ceph Storage cluster, including common troubleshooting and tuning techniques, integration of Ceph with OpenStack Glance and Cinder using Red Hat OpenStack Platform, as well as configuring Ceph with RADOSGW as a replacement for OpenStack Swift through Keystone integration.

Impact of this training

Impact on the organization

This course is intended to develop the skills needed to deploy a software-defined storage system on commodity hardware, permitting distributed, scalable, fault-tolerant block and object data storage. Such a deployment provides a storage infrastructure that can grow at the same pace as your compute infrastructure, allowing a gradual investment to accommodate business growth.

Red Hat has created this course in a way intended to benefit our customers, but each company and infrastructure is unique, and actual results or benefits may vary.

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, students should be able to deploy and operate a Ceph cluster and configure it as the back end for OpenStack.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Describe the architecture of a Ceph cluster.
  • Deploy a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster using Ansible.
  • Manage operations on a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster.
  • Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage as the back end for Red Hat OpenStack Platform.
