Rook is an open source cloud-native storage orchestrator for Kubernetes, providing the platform, framework, and support for Ceph storage to natively integrate with Kubernetes.
Ceph is a distributed storage system that provides file, block and object storage and is deployed in large scale production clusters.
Rook automates deployment and management of Ceph to provide self-managing, self-scaling, and self-healing storage services. The Rook operator does this by building on Kubernetes resources to deploy, configure, provision, scale, upgrade, and monitor Ceph.
The status of the Ceph storage provider is Stable. Features and improvements will be planned for many future versions. Upgrades between versions are provided to ensure backward compatibility between releases.
Rook is hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a graduated level project. If you are a company that wants to help shape the evolution of technologies that are container-packaged, dynamically-scheduled and microservices-oriented, consider joining the CNCF.
