DigitalOcean, a public cloud provider, has been using Ceph to offer block storage and S3-compatible object storage for nearly three years. For most of that time DigitalOcean has used community releases of Ceph, not finding need to make any modifications. However, as the company's storage infrastructure has scaled and user workloads have changed, the DigitalOcean storage team realized they would need to start modifying and contributing to Ceph. One challenge in doing this was the need to test Ceph changes easily and efficiently, preferably without relying on external environments.

In this talk, Adam Wolfe Gordon will discuss how DigitalOcean automated configuration of cloud-based test environments for Ceph's integration testing tool, Teuthology, and challenges faced in doing so. He will demonstrate how to easily set up a Ceph "lab" on DigitalOcean using Terraform and Ansible automation.
