Configuring Ceph with HPE OneSphere KVM
A Ceph block storage device is a virtual disk that can be attached to bare metal Linux based servers or virtual machines. To configure Ceph with HPE OneSphere, you must successfully deploy SUSE Enterprise Storage 5, which supports the Ceph 12.2.x version. This version of Ceph is also referred to as luminous.
By default, the OpenStack Cinder volume service and Ceph related drivers are installed on the KVM node after it is connected to HPE OneSphere.
After a successful deployment of Ceph, you can onboard Ceph Rados Block Device (RBD) into your HPE OneSphere KVM private cloud. To configure RBD to a KVM instance, follow the instructions in the following topics.
