Federico returns to discuss three low-cost clusters he designed over the past year to run Docker Swarm, OpenStack, and Ceph.
We will review the design, inspect the hardware of the three clusters, and look at the design considerations that went into each. Using x86 and ARM chips, the designs span from four nodes to twelve, and from $150 to $2,995-ish. This is a session for hardware and distributed system geeks, be sure to bring interesting questions that no one really knows the answer to!
Federico Lucifredi is The Ceph Storage Product Management Director at Red Hat, formerly the Ubuntu Server PM at Canonical, and the Linux “Systems Management Czar” at SUSE.
