Use Ceph-RGW

This topic describes how to configure Ceph Rados Gateway (RGW) as the backend for the Object Storage Gateway (OSG).


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
  1. Configure objectstorage.providerclient to ceph-rgw:
    euctl objectstorage.providerclient=ceph-rgw
  2. 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.
    euctl objectstorage.s3provider.s3endpoint=<radosgw-host-ip>:<radosgw-webserver-port>
  3. Configure objectstorage.s3provider.s3accesskey and objectstorage.s3provider.s3secretkey with the radosgw user credentials:
    euctl objectstorage.s3provider.s3accesskey=<radosgw-user-accesskey>
    euctl objectstorage.s3provider.s3secretkey=<radosgw-user-secretkey>

The Ceph-RGW backend and OSG are now ready for production.
