Ceph Quincy Release Canadidate v17.1.0 Is Now Available

This is the first release candidate for Quincy. The final release is slated for the end of March.

This release has been through large-scale testing thanks to several organizations, including Pawsey Supercomputing Centre, who allowed us to harden cephadm and the ceph dashboard on their 4000-OSD cluster. Subsequent logical scale testing went up to over 8000 OSDs in a cluster. One major improvement is in quality of service - the mclock scheduler, providing quality of service for ceph clients relative to background operations, is now the default. More information on the scheduler can be found in the latest documentation.

You can see these improvements and more in the release notes preview and help contribute to the pull request.

User + Developer Monthly Meetup

In October 2021, the User + Dev Monthly Meetup was started with the goal for Ceph users to interact with developers directly.

  • Share their experience running Ceph clusters
  • Provide feedback on Ceph versions they are using
  • Ask questions and raise concerns on any matters related to Ceph
  • Provide documentation feedback and suggest improvements

Topics such as design ideas or feature improvements will continue to be discussed in the Ceph Development Monthly meeting.

Meetings occur on the third Thursday of the month, so join us for the following discussion on March 17th at 15:00 UTC.
