DKP is shipped with a Rook Ceph cluster, which is used as the primary blob storage for various DKP components in Logging stack and backups.

The pages in this section provide an overview of the Rook Ceph application in DKP, including information about its components, resource requirements, storage configuration information, and dashboard.

The Ceph instance installed by DKP is intended only for use by the logging stack and velero platform applications.

If you have an instance of Ceph that is managed outside of the DKP lifecycle, see Bring Your Own Storage to DKP Clusters.
