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.
