Installation (ceph-deploy)

Step 1: Preflight

A Ceph Client and a Ceph Node may require some basic configuration work prior to deploying a Ceph Storage Cluster. You can also avail yourself of help by getting involved in the Ceph community.

Step 2: Storage Cluster

Once you have completed your preflight checklist, you should be able to begin deploying a Ceph Storage Cluster.

Step 3: Ceph Client(s)

Most Ceph users don’t store objects directly in the Ceph Storage Cluster. They typically use at least one of Ceph Block Devices, the Ceph Filesystem, and Ceph Object Storage.
