Here I try to describe step-by-step Ceph Storage Cluster (Hammer version, 0.94) installation procedure on CentOS 7 based server.
During the installation process I used documentation from: http://ceph.com/docs/.
I think manual Ceph instalation can help you get more knowledges about how to set it up and how it works but manual method is not so convinient for deploing few clusters in production environment.
There is an original utility wich allows you to automate deploing Ceph cluster – ceph-deploy. But manual installation prcedure can helps you design your own chief, pappet and etc recipes as well.
