CEPH125 - Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration
Learn how to deploy, manage, and scale out a Ceph storage cluster

 

Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) helps you provide unified storage for enterprise servers and Red Hat® OpenStack Platform with Red Hat Ceph Storage. Learn to use a Ceph storage cluster to provide servers and cloud resources with object storage compatible with the Amazon S3 or OpenStack Swift APIs, Ceph-native or iSCSI-based block storage, and file storage using CephFS.

DESCRIPTION

 

Course overview

Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) is designed for storage administrators or cloud operators who intend to deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage to their production data center environment or OpenStack installation.

Course content summary

  • Deploying and managing a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster on commodity servers using Ansible.

  • Creating, expanding, and controlling access to storage pools provided by the Ceph cluster.

  • Accessing Red Hat Ceph Storage from clients using object, block, and file-based methods.

  • Analyzing and tuning Red Hat Ceph Storage performance.

  • Integrating OpenStack image, object, block, and file storage with a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster.

 

AUDIENCE & PREREQUISITES

Audience for this course

This course is intended for storage administrators, cloud operators, and cloud developers who want to learn how to deploy and manage Red Hat Ceph Storage for use by servers in an enterprise data center or within a Red Hat OpenStack Platform environment.

Prerequisites for this course

 

OUTLINE

 

Outline for this course

Prepare for Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Identify challenges faced by traditional storage and explain how Ceph addresses them.

Deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Deploy and expand the storage capacity of a new Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster.

Configure Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Manage how Ceph stores data with pools, configure Red Hat Ceph Storage using its configuration file, and configure users for Ceph clients that may access the Ceph storage cluster.

 

Provide block storage with RBD

  • Configure Ceph to provide block storage for clients by using RADOS block devices (RBDs).

 

Provide object storage with RADOSGW

  • Configure Ceph to provide object storage for clients by using a RADOS gateway (RADOSGW or RGW).

 

Provide file storage with CephFS

  • Configure Ceph to provide file storage for clients using the Ceph Filesystem (CephFS).

 

Configure the CRUSH map

  • 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.

 

Manage and update the cluster maps

  • Explain how the monitor and OSD maps are managed in order to maintain cluster operation, quorum, and consistency.

 

Manage a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster

  • Check Ceph cluster status, troubleshoot Ceph daemon problems, and upgrade Ceph software.

 

Tune and troubleshoot Red Hat Ceph Storage

  • Identify the key performance metrics for a Ceph cluster and use them to help tune and troubleshoot the operating system and Ceph software for optimal performance.

 

Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with OpenStack

  • Configure an OpenStack cloud to use Ceph to provide image, block, object, and file storage.

AFTER THE COURSE

 

Recommended next exam or course

 

  • Red Hat Certified Specialist in Ceph Storage Administration Exam (EX125)

​OUTCOME

 

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 object, block, and file 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.

 

Impact on the individual

As a result of attending this course, you should be able to deploy and operate a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster and configure it as backend storage for Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

Students should be able to demonstrate the following skills:

 

  • Explain the architecture of a Ceph cluster.

  • Deploy a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster using Ansible.

  • Manage operations on a Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster.

  • Provide servers with storage from the Ceph cluster using block, object, and file-based access methods.

  • Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage as backend storage for Red Hat OpenStack Platform.
