    Hi all

    Hey
    sratcliffe
    @sratcliffe
    @/all (assuming that works) - I was considering the answer to @Banshee1221 and it was starting to get quite detailed. Shall we have a 'tech' channel with questions and answers so it is easy to filter these out from other news, or something else more suited to documentation type responses. Perhaps just Google Docs to start with ? Any suggestions would be welcome.

    @Banshee1221
    Probably a good idea to have a detailed tech discussions channel, more off topic as well as some other specifics

    @/all welcome! Thanks for joining Ceph Cape Town :) We already have some questions worth of creating a new room. Check out the Technical room for these discussions.
    @/all we've also got the Announcements room, watch this room for all upcoming events around the Ceph Cape Town community.

    Hi all! We need another meetup! :)

    @lmzxqtom
    Hey @Banshee1221 totally agree. How does last 27'th February or 6'th March sound? I have venue options that I'm currently investigating and will keep everyone posted. If we see a show of hands here as to who would be keen I'll get onto the venue.

    @lmzxqtom Sounds good for me !

    @Banshee1221
    Is it possible to have it on a day that isn't Wednesday, for you? @lmzxqtom
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    @Banshee1221 sure :). What about 28'th Feb? ScaleConf is 7-8 March, so I'm thinking of avoiding those dates.
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    28 feb could work for me!
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    Awesome ! @dlabreu does that suit you? If there are 3 of is going it's a quorum ;)

    @pvanheus
    28th Feb sounds ok - any idea for speakers?
    Daniel De Abreu
    @dlabreu
    @lmzxqtom Ya man I am good to meet even if we have some dinks only would be great!
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    Great. I'll send out an email from cephcpt. @pvanheus what about a session on ceph deployment and monitoring? Any other ideas welcome.
    pvanheus
    @pvanheus
    yeah @Banshee1221 I know you're super busy but any way you can talk about Ceph deployment on Ilifu?
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    uh... yeah I guess I could try to whip something up on that... I'll have to go through all my old non-exhaustive notes and try to remember all of what I did lol
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    @Banshee1221 sounds good :) can I pen you down for a talk :)
    Eugene de Beste
    @Banshee1221
    sure I can probably do that, but it probably won't be a long talk

    @SKAJohanVenter Hey Johan, we are trying some Ceph here at my new work.
    I am looking for a Hardware provider that can work with us on a custom hardware solution just like you have at the SKA
    I remember from our first meeting that the company that sponsored the snacks on that day is your hardware provider and they can make custom systems, I would like to know if you can provide me with the phone number or an email so I can reach out?
    Thanks.

    @SKAJohanVenter
    Hi @dlabreu, @sratcliffe should have those details for you.

    @martinslabber
    Hi @dlabreu, the company was Peralex. See https://www.peralex.com/radio-astronomy (contact details on that page) you can chat to Alex.

    @dlabreu
    @martinslabber @SKAJohanVenter @sratcliffe Thanks for the help guys, Had already contact then and let's see if we can buy some hardware :)

    Hey @/all I'm presenting at a Ceph Conference next week and I'm wanting to put up a slide regarding all the Ceph clusters that I know of in ZA. If you have any information regarding a cluster in ZA please could you direct message me? Thanks!

    Hey @all. For those planning to attend the CHPC conference, please come and attend our birds of a feather session at 15h30 on Wednesday 4 December (https://events.chpc.ac.za/event/47/timetable/#20191204) titled "Ceph and other large data stroage systems".
    • Description: A round table to share experiences, lessons learned and many of the other issues specific to large storage systems.
    • Target audience: Anyone that’s involved or interested in the design, testing and management of a large software defined data storage system.
    • Prerequisites: Nice to have -- Dev/Ops.
    • Outline of the programme: Each attendee will be given 5 minutes (or more) to introduce themselves, and their current storage implementation (if applicable). After the introduction, the agenda for the remaining time will be drawn up. Suggested topics for the agenda: a comparative analysis of storage software implementations (positives and negatives); a list of common issues agnostic to implementation, like configuration management, cluster monitoring, benchmarking tools and hardware specifications.

    Hi guys. I am Thomas from Wingu and we’ve been running Ceph for 5 years.
    When is the next meetup planned?
    Thomas Bennett
    @lmzxqtom
    @irengineer_twitter awesome to hear from you. I know you chatted to @martinslabber at the CHCP conference last year, so thanks for reaching out. I've been thinking it's time for a meet up ;), but no planned one yet.
    Thomas Lee
    @irengineer_twitter
    Thanks for the quick response :-) I know you guys meet up in Cape Town, so maybe we can work towards setting a date? Any excuse to travel to Cape Town is a good one for me :-)

    @lmzxqtom
    @irengineer_twitter If you're willing to come to Cape Town that's fantastic. Cephalocon 2020 is early March. Perhaps we should meet up early April? Is anyone else keen? I can send out an email from cephcpt@gmail.com to a broader audience once we have some interest.
    /all please let me know of anyone you know who is using Ceph in South Africa. If we can pull off another ceph meetup it would be great to include as many new faces as possible.
    @irengineer_twitter send an email to cephcpt@gmail.com and I can add you to the mailing list :)
