  • Data on Kubernetes: Part 2 - Deploying Databases in K8s with PostgreSQL, CloudNative-PG, and Ceph Rook on Amazon EKS
    In this blog post, we'll explore how to combine CloudNative-PG (a PostgreSQL operator) and Ceph Rook (a storage orchestrator) to create a PostgreSQL cluster that scales easily, recovers from failures, and ensures data persistence - all within an Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service EKS cluster. - Source: / 6 days ago
  • Searchable Kubernetes StorageClass Listing
    My experience is that OpenEBS and Longhorn are cool and new and simplified, but that I would only trust my life to Rook/Ceph. If it's going into production, I'd say look at - Ceph can do both block and filesystem volumes. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 month ago
  • Ceph: A Journey to 1 TiB/s
    I have some experience with Ceph, both for work, and with homelab-y stuff. First, bear in mind that Ceph is a distributed storage system - so the idea is that you will have multiple nodes. For learning, you can definitely virtualise it all on a single box - but you'll have a better time with discrete physical machines. Also, Ceph does prefer physical access to disks (similar to ZFS). And you do need decent... - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • Running stateful workloads on Kubernetes with Rook Ceph
    Another option is to leverage a Kubernetes-native distributed storage solution such as Rook Ceph as the storage backend for stateful components running on Kubernetes. This has the benefit of simplifying application configuration while addressing business requirements for data backup and recovery such as the ability to take volume snapshots at a regular interval and perform application-level data recovery in case... - Source: / 7 months ago
  • People who run Nextcloud in Docker: Where do you store your data/files? In a Docker volume, or on a remote server/NAS?
    This is beyond your question but might help someone else: I switch from docker-compose to kubernetes for my home lab a while ago. The storage solution I've settled on is Rook. It was a bit of up-front work learning how to get it up but now that it's done my storage is automatically managed by Ceph. I can swap out drives and Ceph basically takes care of everything itself.

  • Rook/Ceph with VM nodes on research cluster?
    The stumbling point I am at is I want to use as my storage solution for the cluster. The Ceph prerequisites are one of the following:. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Running on-premise k8s with a small team: possible or potential nightmare?
    Storage: Favor any distributed storage you know to start with for Persistent Volumes: Ceph maybe via, Longhorn if you go rancher etc. Source: over 1 year ago
  • [HELP] PXE Boot without data loss
    Third, it sounds like you're building a cluster. For this you'll either want a central file server. Or better, setup a distributed storage system. For example a Ceph cluster managed by Rook. This way you can fully wipe a single node and the system will be able to recover/replicate thed data. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Storage solutions (open-source)
    If you want build-your-own, give a look. Source: over 1 year ago
  • For those managing k8s clusters, are you using Rook + Ceph?
    I just helped write a quick summary of just why you can trust your persistent workloads to Ceph, managed by Rook and it occurred to me that... I'm probably wrong. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Self Hosted Kubernetes - Solving the Storage Problem
    Commenting on the distributed storage (cephfs) section.. We use, which provides an operator to manage the nasty complexities of ceph on Kubernetes. I like it because it means I can manage the cluster lifecycle with a (not-so-simple) YAML, just like everything else :). Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Distributed storage
    Do know that ODF has ...substantial... Resource requirements. You may want to consider using the upstream with ceph and a custom configuration. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Anybody here shooting for high availability in their home lab?
    I use rook to orchestrate Ceph, so it takes care of creating the volume for the PVC etc. Unlike the sibling comment, I'm not using VMs so the virtual disk is getting mounted directly into the K8s pods. I like this because then container (in general) is immutable, and just the mutating state is stored in the volume. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Storage provisioner for self-created clusters in 2022, for disk-heavy workload like MySQL?
    This is my go-to solution every time. Https:// Source: about 2 years ago
  • Recommended on-premis PVC dynamic provider
    At my work (Kubernetes Service Provider), we're running Ceph RBD and CephFS with Rook ( for environments which don't provide a CSI driver. However, depending on your requirements and setup, that may be vastly overkill. We did try Longhorn too, but decided on since the admin experience is much nicer in our opinion. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Scaling down in size/electricity cost/noise, still packing a punch 18c/36t@3.8GHz, 192GB RAM
    How are you handling storage? I always thought of running this kind of setup along with something like Source: over 2 years ago
  • Installing a small kubernetes cluster on cloud VMs
    I "nuke" the additional volumes to not contain any filesystem and then use to provide the storage for the cluster. Rook deploys ceph inside your cluster and provides the storageclasses to have block devices or even a shared filesystem. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Personal K8s cluster
    I always wondered how well Ceph would perform on 8GB PI 4s and SSD USBs. Unfortunately those are very hard to buy nowadays. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Is there a HA memory solution?
    In Kubernetes, we do storage using distributed systems. For example, Rook can be used to deploy a Ceph cluster. Source: over 2 years ago
  • First raspberry pi cluster
    I wonder how well performs with 8GB pis and usb SSDs. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Building a "complete" cluster locally
    Rook/longhorn for distributed storage. Source: over 2 years ago
