"one area that I’m pushing the team to add in future releases is the ability to augment Ceph with our SDS portfolio. I know that for continued alignment with RedHat, we will keep Ceph (their SDS) as part of the stack for as long as it’s core to RedHat (the foreseeable future)."

As a Dell Technologies customer who buys RH OpenStack, and Ceph (and was looking at NFV) from your company at a substantial scale, this comment certainly has me concerned. If I wanted ECS, I would have asked for it... The reference architecture my team leveraged to build our solution showed us Dell knew what it was doing, and what was right for the customer. My employee sent me this blog, and it will now make us look at Lenovo or HPE for their comparable expertise in our November procurement.

@Jason - thanks for the comment.

I'm confused a bit - because I thought I was clear, but clearly, I wasn't. Do you mind re-reading the paragraph and telling me if I missed it? The operative word is "augment". I even note that it's clear to all that if we tried to substitute, we would not be aligned with RedHat.

Is there harm in giving you the choice of using CEPH and/or our Cinder targets and object storage targets? Surely that doesn't take anything away from you.

The whole post, the whole work to produce the RedHat Ready Bundle is a testament to the partnership. Do you think that providing a choice that each customer can decide if it's helpful to them is bad in some way?

(and if so - of course, as you note - you have choices).

Are you looking at a similar bundle with SUSE or provide an option around it?
