      Comments about oreilly Learning Ceph:

      I bought "Learning Ceph" as well as "Ceph Cookbook" by the same author. Unfortunately, both books are lacking proof reading. Both books are full of Errata, some of them which are very easy to spot (e.g. mixing up config options) and some of them that make you understand Ceph even less than before and lead to a lot of frustration.

      If you really want to learn Ceph, best entry points are the Ceph documentation (which is not really good either) as well as the Red Hat documentation.

      If you are interested in Erasure Coding, look at jerasure.org, where you will get serious information. The information at Red Hat concerning EC contains information by this book's successor which is plain wrong in some regards, unfortunately.

      Ceph consists of a lot of parts. It is a pity that this book and it's successor don't make it any easier to grasp.
