Our project:

Ceph is an open-source, distributed storage system with no single point of failure. It is increasingly
used as a software-defined storage solution for cloud infrastructure. Our project’s goal is to provide
Ceph-as-a-Service, so others can make use of it without having to set it up and manage themselves.
Our project is most accurately described as delivering Infrastructure As Code. We write software that
takes care of setting up systems, so that no human sysadmin intervention is required. We use Python
as the primary programming language and Puppet for setting up and managing systems. We also
contribute all our patches upstream.
