Ceph Day Berlin


croit GmbH will be at Ceph Day Berlin on November 12th, 2018 to present the latest version of their innovative Ceph Storage Management solution. croit has been developing an innovative solution in the past years, making the complex administration of Ceph simple and cost-effective.

Speaker Martin Verges will be on stage at Berlin to inform about the latest developments. In addition to a brief presentation of the company and its founders, the young entrepreneurs will explain their motivation to develop a new solution for the management of Ceph clusters. In front of the professional audience, consisting of enterprises and Ceph enthusiasts, Martin will talk about three topics:

  • The economic aspects of a cluster installation without an operating system
  • How easy is upgrading a Ceph version with croit
  • Can Ceph be competitively priced compared to Amazon Glacier

"Many current Ceph users have to overcome a major hurdle with many potential risks, e.g., when upgrading to the latest Ceph Mimic release. This can be avoided with croit as a management solution," is Managing Director Martin Verges convinced. To avoid these risks and problems during operation with Ceph, the start-up company relies on state-of-the-art software development approaches. In addition to extensive testing, the combined package of software and operating system ensures significantly more reliable operations.

The brand new croit v1809 release, based on Ceph 13.2 Luminous, brings tons of new features and improvements. Thus, croit offers decisive advantages over other solutions on the market.

CTO Paul Emmerich is optimistic about croit's future: "We are continuously working on further optimizing croit and thus making the daily work with Ceph clusters considerably easier. We expect to see further innovative developments in the future that will redefine how storage is handled."
