Ceph Storage 4 is based on the Nautilus version of the Ceph open-source project. The release to general availability of the latest version brings with it several exciting new features. The management dashboard was updated to allow users to optionally hide or display components so that customers can customize the interface and focus on what really matters. The dashboard also added customizable alerts to the dashboard. The dashboard also boasts better integration with ansible playbooks, mostly in the form of better installation support. Speaking of installation, Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 adds support for a web-based installation interface.

Red Hat Ceph Storage 4 support for third-party tools is a bit of a mixed bag. Ubuntu users will be sad to learn that installing on Ubuntu is no longer supported. On the other hand, OSD BlueStore is now fully supported as a new back end allowing for storing objects directly on the block devices. Kubernetes users will be happy to hear that S3 bucket notifications are now supported, although only as a technology preview as support still has a few rough edges.
