Provisioning storage is an important task of a storage system administrator. Ceph provides us with multiple abstractions to access data stored in various forms as we have seen in the previous chapters. We can store data within a block device attached to our machine, on a locally mounted filesystem, or remotely accessible object storage using those abstractions.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Setting up Ceph Block Devices
- Setting up the Ceph Filesystem
- Setting up Ceph Object Storage using RADOS Gateway
- Configuring S3 and Swift with RADOS Gateway
