Ceph and SUSE making the first step toward Windows
Ceph is a highly-resilient software-defined-storage offering which has only been available to Microsoft Windows environments through the use of iSCSI or CIFS gateways.
In order to bring the benefits of native Ceph to Microsoft Windows environments, SUSE partnered with Cloudbase Solutions to port Ceph to the Microsoft Windows platform. As of the 11th of September 2020, we are announcing the first release of the beta Windows Driver.
We also want to give you a sneak peek at our new Ceph for Windows Guide, available here.
For more information, you can view the SUSECon presentation from SUSE’s very own, Mike Latimer, and Cloudbase Solutions CEO, Alessandro Pilotti, here or view their presentation from Cephalocon 2020 here.
We highly recommend you to also take a look at our on going SES7 Public Beta Program! All the information you need are at https://suse.com/betaprogram/storage-beta/
