Samba and CTDB rely heavily on POSIX fcntl locks for data and meta-data integrity. This functionality was recently fixed in CephFS, opening up the possibility to use CephFS as an underlying filesystem for a scale-out Samba/CTDB cluster.

Such an architecture should perform and scale much better than the existing single Samba + VFS module gateway.

Looking for hackers with the skills:

      I large chunk of my Hack Week time packaging ceph, ceph-deploy and associated build / runtime requirements. The packages can be found on the build service at: home:dmdiss:ceph -> merged to filesystems devel package home:dmdiss:ceph-deploy -> merged to filesystems devel package home:dmdiss:ceph_lts LevelDB was submitted as a new factory devel package.

      The devel packages still need to be submitted to Factory, for inclusion in openSUSE 13.2.
