Build and validate a scale-out Samba/CTDB cluster atop CephFS

an invention by dmdiss

Samba and CTDB rely heavily on POSIX fcntl locks for data and meta-data integrity. This functionality was recently fixed in CephFS, opening up the possibility to use CephFS as an underlying filesystem for a scale-out Samba/CTDB cluster. Such an architecture should perform and scale much better than the existing single Samba + VFS module gateway.

Use Ceph RADOS key-value store as a dbwrap backend for Samba

a project by dmdiss

Ceph offers a highly scalable and fault-tolerant storage system. Samba is already capable of sharing data located on the Ceph Filesystem, however scale-out sharing (the same data exposed by multiple Samba nodes) currently requires the use of CTDB for consistent and coherent state across Samba cluster nodes. In such a setup CTDB provides a clustered database with persistent key-value data storage and locking. Database usage is abstracted out via a generic dbwrap interface. Ceph's librados library provides an API for the storage and retrieval of arbitrary key-value data via the omap functions. A watch/notify protocol is also provided as a mechanism for synchronising client state (locking). Key-value data stored in the RADOS back-end inherits the same redundancy features as regular objects, making it a potentially good candidate as a replacement for CTDB in scale-out Samba clusters.
