Announcing Release 3 of Ceph Storage for Oracle Linux

Simon Hayler
Senior Technical Product Manager

We are excited to announce Release 3 of Ceph Storage for Oracle Linux. This release presents a uniform view of object and block storage from a cluster of multiple physical and logical commodity-hardware storage devices. Ceph can provide fault tolerance and enhance I/O performance by replicating and striping data across the storage devices in a Ceph Storage Cluster. Ceph's monitoring and self-repair features minimize administration overhead.

Release 3 of Ceph Storage for Oracle Linux is based on the Ceph Community Luminous release (v12.2.5). Differences between Oracle versions of the software and upstream releases are limited to Oracle-specific fixes and patches for specific bugs.

Supported features include the Object Store, Block Device, Ceph Storage Cluster, Ceph File System (Ceph FS), Simple Ceph Object Gateway, and Multisite Ceph Object Gateway components.


Notable new features:

  • Ceph Manager daemon, ceph-mgr, to monitor clusters
  • Ceph Manager web-based dashboard
  • OSDs using the BlueStore backend to manage HDDs and SSDs
  • Simplified OSD replacement process


Release 3 of Ceph Storage for Oracle Linux adds support for:

  • Ceph iSCSI gateway
  • Ceph FS
  • Export Ceph FS filesystems and block storage over NFS
  • Ceph block devices with QEMU


Supported Upgrade Path

Please refer to the product documentation upgrade section for steps and procedures.
