Hands-On Test Drive: MySQL on Ceph
Bring your laptop. In this hands-on lab, you'll create your first Ceph cluster on AWS, backing a MySQL instance. Each attendee will be given access to their own 9-node Ceph cluster in the cloud. The test drive lab exercises will cover: (a) Creating a Ceph cluster (Pools, OSDs, and Monitors) (b) Client access to your Ceph cluster (simple rados object and RBD block device clients) (c) Determining the health of your cluster (Calamari, CLI) (d) Running MySQL against a Ceph block device
