sambaXP 2020 Retrospective: Ceph Samba Gateway and transparent failover improvements (Cabrero & Disseldorp)

Samuel Cabrero and David Disseldorp (both work at Suse and are members of the Samba Team) talked about combining CephFS and Samba at this year's sambaXP 2020

Abstract

CephFS and Samba can be combined to provide a highly scalable filesystem which can be accessed from SMB clients such as Linux, Windows and macOS.

This talk looks at Samba clustering features under development, which aim to provide improved availability and performance, with a focus on:

  • New RADOS dbwrap backend as an alternative to CTDB
  • Fast Client failover with Witness Protocol as an alternative to tickles ACKs

About the "sambaXP 2020 Retrospective"

In this series we will present recordings of the sambaXP 2020 in the coming month. The 19th edition of the international conference on the open source software Samba took place from 26 - 28 May 2020 for the first time exclusively in digital form. Due to the changed event format and the use of an online conference platform, organizer SerNet is able to offer all talks as videos for viewing (link).
