Rook is an open source cloud-native storage orchestrator, providing the platform, framework, and support for Ceph storage to natively integrate with cloud-native environments.
Ceph is a distributed storage system that provides file, block and object storage and is deployed in large scale production clusters.
Rook automates deployment and management of Ceph to provide self-managing, self-scaling, and self-healing storage services. The Rook operator does this by building on Kubernetes resources to deploy, configure, provision, scale, upgrade, and monitor Ceph.
The Ceph operator was declared stable in December 2018 in the Rook v0.9 release, providing a production storage platform for many years. Rook is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a graduated level project.
Quick Start Guide¶
Starting Ceph in your cluster is as simple as a few
kubectl commands. See our Quickstart guide to get started with the Ceph operator!
