Our Ceph course offers both hands on and lecture. Each student will have their own 3-node environment that they will practice skill building. Initially, students will start their work with a fully operational system, basically like learning how to drive. As the course progresses advanced labs requires students to deploy major parts of the system on their own, with the final day dedicated to log analysis and troubleshooting. All that is required to access the labs is a browser and no plugins, it just works.
5 Days with Hands-on Labs
Day 1 - Storage Basics and Ceph Architecture
An overview of ceph architecture, why ceph was developed, plus an explanation of the compelling reasons to use ceph over other storage solutions. Students will develop administrative skills by performing labs on a fully functional ceph cluster. Labs will illustrate how to admin ceph and well as demonstrate basic troubleshooting technique. Ultimately, this section will teach students how to administer
Day 2 - Containers and Kubernetes
Learn how Kubernetes may be used to deploy and manage Ceph in a containerized environment. Ceph admin skills developed on day one will drill down into a containerized deployment. Students will learn hardware requirements, software dependencies, Persistent volumes, deploy routers, ceph clients, study journaling and deploy at least two OSDs per container. Students will be provided with 3 nodes per student.
Day 3 - Ceph and Helm
Learn how to deploy and control ceph clusters using Helm. Studies will include rbac permissions, kublets, configure a pod to use PVs, as well as logging.
Day 4 - Monitoring Ceph
Given a working Ceph cluster, learn best practices on how to monitor and manage a Ceph cluster, using Prometheus and Grafana.
Day 5 - Ceph in Depth
Emphasis on this day will focus on monitoring and troubleshooting ceph. Students will practice solving real-world problems in their own 3-node environment.
