As you know, we've been talking about full support for Rocky Linux on single servers
and clusters for a while now — but the wait is over! As of yesterday, storage
users can quote Rocky Linux as their OS of choice from our website.
Our team here at 45Drives is incredibly happy to bring back a modern RHEL product as a software offering for single server and/or clustering users.
But that's not it — Ceph Deploy is also live. Last week, we shared our full tutorial video on how to use our new Ceph Deploy module inside Houston. This module was built to simplify the deployment of Ceph storage clusters by using a step-by-step graphical interface.
If you haven't checked out last week's tutorial from our R&D Engineer Mark Hooper, we highly suggest that you do — it's pretty awesome and, of course, informational.
Don't forget, our 45Drives Repo has all the installation packages. In addition, this repository site is the home for all new updates, package installations, and setup scripts.
Our Lead Engineer and R&D Manager Brett Kelly is back in front of the camera to
tell us all about the release of Rocky Linux and Ceph Deploy.
And, for those looking to get their hands on any of this software, watch the video to find out how and where to download.

University of California San Diego (UCSD), and the University of Oregon (UO) --
providing access to state-of-the-art Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) fire cameras and
associated tools to help firefighters and first responders:
discover/locate/confirm fire ignition, quickly scale fire resources up or down
appropriately, monitor fire behavior through containment, during firestorms,
help evacuations through enhanced situational awareness, and ensure contained
fires are monitored appropriately through their demise.
This is the server room where ALERTWildfire archives data from all the cameras in their network (roughly 69,000,000 images per day).
