OpenStack users deploying Ceph for block (Cinder) and object (S3/Swift) are unsurprisingly looking at Manila and CephFS to round out a unified storage solution. Ceph is based on a low-level object storage layer call RADOS that serves as the foundation for its object, block, and file services. Manila's file as a service in OpenStack enables a range of container-based use-cases with Docker and Kubernetes, but a variety of deployment architectures are possible.
This talk will cover the current state of CephFS support in Manila, including upstream Manila support, Manila works in progress, a progress update on CephFS itself, including new multi-tenancy support to facilitate cloud deployments, and a discussion of how this impact container deployment scenarios in an OpenStack cloud.
