OpenStack Meetup: Storage Performance -The AWS Way for QoS with OpenStack & Ceph

Red Hat, Open Innovation Labs, Boston 300 A Street , Boston, ma 02210 (map)

Hello all, our January session is all set! Red Hat will be joining us as our co-sponsor this month, and as added extra special bonus - our friends at Red Hat will be hosting the Meetup at their brand NEW Open Innovation Labs facility @ 300 A St, Boston, MA 02210. Our topic is as follows: Managing storage quality of service is a hot topic among operators of OpenStack systems. Tenants demand that their private cloud environments provide familiar public cloud modalities, including the ability to provision deterministic storage performance. This talk will detail how Ceph storage pools can be combined with Cinder Volume Types to emulate Amazon’s Magnetic and Provisioned IOPS Elastic Block Store (EBS). Performance graphs will detail when size based limits, or fixed limits are more appropriate, depending on the type of storage media used in the underlying Ceph pool. Our co-presenters are Federico Lucifredi and Sean Cohen. Federico Lucifredi is currently the Product Management Director for Ceph Storage at Red Hat, and was formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux "Systems Management Czar" at SUSE.

Sean Cohen, Sean is a member of the OpenStack Foundation, a frequent speaker at OpenStack summits and a regular contributor to the Red Hat Stack blog -
