Re: nova ceph integration


Try to have a look at the boot from volume feature. Basically the disk
base of your instance is an RBD volume from Ceph. Something will be
remain in /var/lib/nova/instances but it's only the kvm xml file.

I'd like to have EVERYTHING in ceph, starting from glance images to nova-disk-images and volumes (cinder). And more important: Can this be done in a way so that my horizon-users can still use horizon (including snapshotting) without the need of abusing the command-line? :)
