@lmzxqtom Ya man I am good to meet even if we have some dinks only would be great!
Great. I'll send out an email from cephcpt. @pvanheus what about a session on ceph deployment and monitoring? Any other ideas welcome.
yeah @Banshee1221 I know you're super busy but any way you can talk about Ceph deployment on Ilifu?
Eugene de Beste
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
@Banshee1221 sounds good :) can I pen you down for a talk :)
Eugene de Beste
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.
Hi @dlabreu, @sratcliffe should have those details for you.
@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!
Hello from Ceph Day CERN. Sage telling us now about what's coming in Octopus.
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?
@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.
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 :-)
@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 email@example.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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I can add you to the mailing list :)
