             Summary: HBase on Ceph
                 Key: HBASE-13485
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-13485
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: Andrew Purtell


Ceph (http://ceph.com/ceph-storage/ is an open source, scalable, distributed, clustered block
storage system with interesting dynamic data placement properties and support for tiered storage
and multiple strategies for resilience. Ceph is a layered system: a block storage layer, known
as RADOS, and a filesystem layer implemented on top of the block store, of varying degrees
of stability.

It might be interesting to try out HBase on Ceph using the Hadoop filesystem binding for Ceph
(https://github.com/ceph/cephfs-hadoop). Alternatively, implement "HBase filesystem" support
for RADOS via the Java bindings (https://github.com/ceph/rados-java, via JNA). Considerations
here will be similar to what we might want to do when HDFS decouples block management from
namespace.
