Re: nova ceph integration


Ceph has been officially production ready for block (rbd) and object
storage (radosgw) for a while. It's just the file system that isn't
ready yet:

Speaking of which guys,
anything particular stability-wise regarding Ceph within OpenStack. It's
officially not production-ready, yet it's often that solution that comes out
when we are looking for data clustering.
GlusterFS...yah or nay?

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'm sorry if this has been asked before. My question is: can I integrate ceph
into openstack's nova & cinder in a way, that I don't need
/var/lib/nova/instances anymore? 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? :)
I've read that cinder and glance are supported, but I didn't find much
information on nova-disk-images and ceph.

thanks for a reply
