After learning there was an API for Ceph, it was clear to me that I was going to write a client to wrap around it and use it for various purposes.
I learned that there was a Ceph REST API and I experimented with it a bit.
Ceph is a distributed object store and file system designed to
provide excellent performance, reliability and scalability.
It’s a technology I’ve been following and working with for the past couple months, especially around deploying it with puppet, I really have a feeling it is going to revolutionize the world of storage.
