The company said in a statement that it would continue to develop openATTIC within Ceph in order to make administration simpler for all users.
The dashboard will make its appearance in the Mimic release of Ceph. SUSE is the main contributor to this project in terms of code and human resources, and has an entire team working on it.
The openATTIC management framework is part of SUSE Enterprise Storage, an intelligent software-defined storage management solution powered by Ceph technology.
“Our focus is on both contributing to and using innovation from the community and influencing upstream to meet customer needs – ours and those of other open source providers.
It’s our bedrock for delivering enterprise-hardened solutions, and we know the contribution of openATTIC assets, time and effort to Ceph will improve customer experience and efficiency from the outset.
"We are looking forward to further enhancing the Ceph dashboard in future releases and encourage other contributors to collaborate with us to support this effort.”
