Ceph is a distributed storage and network file system designed to provide
excellent performance, reliability, and scalability.


Ceph is a distributed storage and network file system designed to provide
excellent performance, reliability, and scalability.

This charm allows connecting an existing Ceph deployment with a Juju environment.


Your config.yaml needs to provide the monitor-hosts and fsid options like below:

config.yaml: yaml ceph-proxy: monitor-hosts: IP_ADDRESS:PORT IP ADDRESS:PORT fsid: FSID

You must then provide this configuration to the new deployment: juju deploy ceph-proxy -c config.yaml.

This charm noes NOT insert itself between the clusters, but merely makes the external cluster available through Juju's environment by exposing the same relations that the existing ceph charms do.

(string) Which authentication flavour to use. . Valid options are "cephx" and "none". If "none" is specified, keys will still be created and deployed so that it can be enabled later.
