Ceph is free and open source distributed objectstorage solution. With Ceph we can easily provide and manage block storage, object storage and file storage.

Ceph block devices are thin-provisioned, resizable and store data striped over multiple OSDs in a Ceph cluster. Ceph block devices leverage RADOS capabilities such as snapshotting, replication and consistency. Ceph’s RADOS Block Devices (RBD) interact with OSDs using kernel modules or the librbd library.

The Ceph Filesystem (CephFS) is a POSIX-compliant filesystem that uses a Ceph Storage Cluster to store its data. The Ceph filesystem uses the same Ceph Storage Cluster system as Ceph Block Devices, Ceph Object Storage with its S3 and Swift APIs, or native bindings (librados).
