TUT6117 - Quick-and-Easy Deployment of a Ceph Storage Cluster with SLES - With a look at SUSE Studio, Manager and Build Service

Session Speakers
Session Description

The goal with this technical session is to "touch" several SUSE products and expose to the audience all their power while introducing Ceph in a very pragmatic way. As a very innovative and appealing technology, Ceph will be the pivot of the discussion, made easy and accessible to everyone thanks to SUSE. In details, we will talk about the quick-and-easy deployment of a Ceph Storage Cluster by using several technologies (i.e. dhcpd, tftpd, insserver...) with strong emphasis on AutoYaST and SLES as a "Boot Server" to deploy systems (automated installation and configuration) in an advanced scenario such as Ceph Storage Cluster. In a handful of clicks, live, we will create a Ceph Storage Cluster from scratch and we will then expand it with almost zero user-interaction. To perform this during the session, we will use a pre-configured software appliance based on SLES11 SP3 running Ceph Firefly. Not by chance, this is created with SUSE Studio, available on Gallery, and using repositories from the Open Build Service. At the end, we will briefly introduce all these aspects (SUSE Studio, Gallery, Build Service) and will point the audience to SUSE Gallery as a starting point to reproduce what was demonstrated in the session. To finish, we will talk about the possibility to simplify all the software stack above by using SUSE Manager and Cobbler.
