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 presentation we will look at sizing a Ceph Object Gateway cluster, identifying performance requirements, identifying suitable hardware and configuring storage policies with varying performance characteristics. We will also look at Ceph features such as Erasure Coding, Compression bucket index sharding and integration with OpenStack.
Failover and recovery options with also be touched upon with discussion on RGW multisite deployments.
