RedHat built a distributed object storage solution named Ceph which first debuted ten years ago. Now we are seeing rapid developments in the industry and we want to take advantage of them. In this talk, we will briefly introduce Ceph, revisit the problems we are seeing when profiling its I/O performance with flash device, and explain why we want to embrace the future by switching to Seastar. We’ll share our experiences with the audience of how and when we are porting our software to this framework.
