This topic describes how to configure Ceph Rados Gateway (RGW) as the backend for the
Object Storage Gateway (OSG).
- Successful completion of all the install sections prior to this section.
- The UFS must be registered and enabled.
- A Ceph storage cluster is available.
- The ceph-radosgw service has been installed (on the UFS or any other host)
and configured to use the Ceph storage cluster. Eucalyptus recommends using
civetweb with ceph-radosgw service. Civetweb
is a lightweight web server and is included in the ceph-radosgw installation. It is relatively easier
to install and configure than the alternative option – a combination of Apache and Fastcgi modules.
- You must execute the steps below as a Eucalyptus administrator.
For more information on Ceph-RGW, see the Ceph-RGW documentation.
Note: Ceph RGW is a Controlled Availability feature. For information about Controlled Availability features in
Eucalyptus, see Special Status Release Features.
To configure Ceph-RGW object storage for the OSG
Configure objectstorage.providerclient to ceph-rgw:
Configure objectstorage.s3provider.s3endpoint to the ip:port of the host
running the ceph-radosgw service:
Note: Depending on the front end web server used by ceph-radosgw service, the
default port is 80 for apache and 7480 for civetweb.
Configure objectstorage.s3provider.s3accesskey and objectstorage.s3provider.s3secretkey with the radosgw user credentials:
The Ceph-RGW backend and OSG are now ready for production.
