About the Documentation category

Ceph is a unified, distributed storage system designed for excellent performance, reliability, and scalability. It allows for object, block, and file storage, where all three are based upon Ceph RADOS (Reliable Autonomic Distributed Object Store).

Charmed Ceph deploys and manages Ceph using Juju’s modeling paradigm. This makes operating the cluster easier by eliminating the minutiae of operational tasks. In addition, improvements are added to Charmed Ceph that are specific to Debian and Ubuntu such as bug and security fixes.
