Ceph is a free-software storage platform. It provides an interface for the object, block, and file -level storage. Ceph aims for completely distributed operation without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. It also replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, using commodity hardware and does not require any specific hardware support. As a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
