Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125VT)
About this Course
Red Hat Ceph Storage Architecture and Administration (CEPH125) provides an in-depth overview of the Red Hat Ceph Storage architecture and instructions on deploying Red Hat Ceph Storage, including the Ceph Storage Cluster (RADOS), the Ceph Object Gateway (RADOSGW), and the Ceph Block Device (RBD). The course also focuses on the day-to-day operation of a Ceph Storage cluster, including common troubleshooting and tuning techniques, integration of Ceph with OpenStack Glance and Cinder using Red Hat OpenStack Platform, as well as configuring Ceph with RADOSGW as a replacement for OpenStack Swift through Keystone integration.
Primary audience for this course are:
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.
At Course Completion
Upon course completion, students will be able to:
- Deploy Red Hat Ceph Storage
- Create a Ceph Block Device client
- Deploy the Red Hat Ceph Storage Gateway objects
- Troubleshoot Red Hat Ceph Storage
- Red Hat Ceph Storage operations and tuning
- Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with Glance
- Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with Cinder
- Integrate Red Hat Ceph Storage with Keystone
Before attending this course, students should have the following knowledge or experience:
- Be certified as a Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA), or demonstrate equivalent experience
- Some experience with storage administration is recommended, but not required
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.
