In the last months, I’ve refreshed my knowledge on Ceph storage, an open source scale out storage entirely made in software. As I’ve walked through my own learning path, I’ve created a series of blog posts explaining the basics, how to deploy and configure it, and my use cases. In this second part: architecture for dummies.

There are many enhancements that are not part of the marketing activities, but nonetheless they all contribute to create every time an awesome version of the software.
I’ve created a list of my favorite 8 new technical features, my “gems”. In this series of posts, I will show you them and dive a little bit into their technical details. In this eight episode, we will talk about Hyper-V.
