2.5. Ceph Storage

This section outlines the top new features for Ceph Storage.
Containerized Ceph Deployment
The director can now deploy a containerized Red Hat Ceph cluster. To do this, the director uses built-in heat templates and environment files that work with Ansible playbooks available through the ceph-ansible project.
Improved Resource Management for HCI
Previously, when deploying Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI) users had to manually configure resource isolation on hyper-converged Compute nodes. The director can now use OpenStack Workflow to derive HCI-suitable CPU and RAM allocation settings and apply them.
