Stretch Clusters in Ceph: Algorithms, Use Cases, and Improvements - Gregory Farnum, Red Hat

While Ceph is designed for use in a single data center, users have deployed “stretch” clusters across multiple data centers for many years, and deploying Ceph to back Red Hat’s OpenShift Data Foundation product required us to support that workload explicitly and well — in particular, in the face of netsplits. At FOSDEM 2020, I reported on improvements to our monitor leader elections and plans for the OSD peering process to keep data available without breaking our data integrity guarantees. This talk presents the initial completed version of that work from an algorithm and programmer perspective: new monitor election algorithms and OSD peering changes to support a 2-site cluster, which is all present in the Pacific point releases. Lastly, we’ll discuss what still needs to be done to expand stretch functionality into more environments and use cases.
