Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration


This course is part of a series of courses that focus on using OpenShift Container Platform to automate a portion of the software delivery pipeline. The course familiarizes participants to a DevOps environment through the use of agile software development methodology, test-driven development, continuous integration, and a standard operating environment through the use of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). During the course, participants also learn about implementing user stories for an existing Java EE application and deploying the application to an OpenShift instance.

This course is based on Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform 3.5.

  • Configure Ceph to provide file storage for clients using the Ceph Filesystem (CephFS)
  • 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
  • Explain how the monitor and OSD maps are managed in order to maintain cluster operation, quorum, and consistency
  • Check Ceph cluster status
  • Troubleshoot Ceph daemon problems
  • Upgrade Ceph software
  • Identify the key performance metrics for a Ceph cluster
