You can find detailed info here but to cut it short and provide you with a birds-eye view, Glance is just a service that is used to discover, retrieve and manage your VM images. It has its own cli-client and REST based API calls for managing Images. You can use any storage be it Ceph or any other. Glance can used that as its backend because essentially its a service.
