Ceph activities for Trusty

Registered by James Page on 2013-11-01

Ceph continues to be a core part of the Ubuntu OpenStack platform; we should continue to ensure that it rocks on Ubuntu for the 14.04 release.

[GOAL]
Rock solid, fully supported Ceph for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

[USER STORIES]
John is deploying Ceph with OpenStack Icehouse; he's able to leverage the latest Ceph integration features using Ceph directly from the Ubuntu Archive.

Tony wants to deploy a geo-replicated RADOS Gateway on Ceph; he's able todo this using Ceph from the Ubuntu Archive.

[ASSUMPTIONS]
Firefly release schedule lines up with Ubuntu release schedule.

[RISKS]
Ceph is not really supportable for a 5 year LTS (mitigation - provision of newer Ceph in Cloud Archive for 14.04).
