Currently, in order to use Ceph in oVirt you have 2 options:
1. Ceph using ISCSI gateway - regular ISCSI storage domain with Ceph
as the storage backend, supports all the regular operations .
2. Using the new Managed Block Storage (Cinderlib integration)
technical-preview - Create a Managed Block Storage domain that doesn't
support all the operations that we have for the "regular" storage
domain you can find more info here  and .
Each option has its benefits.

I need some "best practice" advice. We have a Ceph Storage
Cluster (Octopus moving to Pacific) which we'd like to use
with our new oVirt Cluster (all on CentOS 8 boxes). What I'd
like to know is what is the "best" (ie recommended / best
practice) way of doing this - via iSCSI, CFS, 'raw' RBD
blocks, some other way I haven't read about yet, etc?
I realise 'best' is a subjective term, but what I tend to do
is do 'manual' installs so that I both actually understand
what is happening (ie how things fit together - I pull apart
and rebuild mechanical clocks and watches for the same reason)
and also so I can '"Puppet-ise" the results for future use.
This means that I am *not* necessarily looking for "quick and
dirty" or "quick and easy" (ie, I have no trouble using the
CLI and 'vim-ing' conf files as required) but I do want a
solid, "best-practice" system when I'm done.
So, can some please help? And also, would you mind pointing me
towards the relevant documentation for the answer(s) supplied
(yes, I *always* RTFM :-) ).
Thanks in advance
