SUSE to contribute openATTIC management framework to Ceph project

By

Germany-based open source software company SUSE Linux will contribute its openATTIC storage management framework to the Ceph distributed storage system so that it can become the default dashboard for monitoring and managing the Ceph software.

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.

“SUSE is committed to the upstream project first, which always turns into better results for the enterprise users who are not far downstream,” said Lenz Grimmer, one of the original openATTIC team members and current SUSE engineering team lead for openATTIC and the Ceph dashboard.

“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.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
