Manila Ganesha

This charm provides Ganesha with CephFS as a storage backend for Manila, OpenStack's shared filesystem service.


Manila (charm 'manila') and this 'manila-ganesha' charm rely on services provided by the following charms: 'percona-cluster' (MySQL), 'rabbitmq-server', and 'keystone'. A charmed CephFS solution is also needed for the backend: 'ceph-fs' ('ceph-mon' is typically already included with OpenStack). High availability is a separate topic.


This charm can optionally dedicate a provider's physical network to serving Ganesha NFS shares. It does so through its support for Juju spaces. The charm uses a space called 'tenant-storage'.


One way to deploy Manila Ganesha is to use a bundle overlay when deploying OpenStack via a bundle:

juju deploy ./base.yaml --overlay ./manila-ganesha-overlay.yaml

See appendix Manila Ganesha: Ceph-backed Shared Filesystem Service in the OpenStack Charms Deployment Guide to see what such an overlay may look like as well as for more general information on using Manila Ganesha with charmed OpenStack.


Please report bugs on Launchpad.
