8 Installation of Services to Access your Data

After you deploy your SUSE Enterprise Storage 6 cluster you may need to install additional software for accessing your data, such as the Object Gateway or the iSCSI Gateway, or you can deploy a clustered file system on top of the Ceph cluster. This chapter mainly focuses on manual installation. If y…

9 Ceph Object Gateway

Ceph Object Gateway is an object storage interface built on top of librgw to provide applications with a RESTful gateway to Ceph clusters. It supports two interfaces:

10 Installation of iSCSI Gateway

iSCSI is a storage area network (SAN) protocol that allows clients (called initiators) to send SCSI commands to SCSI storage devices (targets) on remote servers. SUSE Enterprise Storage 6 includes a facility that opens Ceph storage management to heterogeneous clients, such as Microsoft Windows* and …

11 Installation of CephFS

The Ceph file system (CephFS) is a POSIX-compliant file system that uses a Ceph storage cluster to store its data. CephFS uses the same cluster system as Ceph block devices, Ceph object storage with its S3 and Swift APIs, or native bindings (librados).

12 Installation of NFS Ganesha

NFS Ganesha provides NFS access to either the Object Gateway or the CephFS. In SUSE Enterprise Storage 6, NFS versions 3 and 4 are supported. NFS Ganesha runs in the user space instead of the kernel space and directly interacts with the Object Gateway or CephFS.
