Ceph block storage has now been integrated in the cloud. It can be used to run your vm root disks and extra block storage to instances. You will also be able to clone, backup and share your block storage.
The block storage CEPH backend for the cloud has been finished and tested. It contains of 3 mon nodes and 4 OSD nodes (each serving one OSD). With a total capacity of 12 Terra Bytes it will provide a total of 6TB redundant block storage to the OpenStack cloud.
We are finished installing the first POC setup for phase one of the project. This 4 node installation will be further tuned to meet the requirements for launch. Have a look at our Resource page to learn more.
