[ceph-users] Is object name used by CRUSH algorithm?

You are probably thinking of Amazon's S3 where adding a random prefix
to object names was a common performance optimization in the past, but
I think they fixed that recently.

Anyways, common prefixes are very common in Ceph and no problem. For
example, all objects within an rbd imge have the same prefix.

The objects are copied to various buckets like bucket_YYYYMMDD/dir1/dir2/dir3/yyyy/mm/dd. This setup minimize some internal code change when moving from NFS to object store.
