Ambedded Releases The Ceph Management GUI UVS Manager 2.16.19 with Ceph Pacific

Ambedded announces the release of UVS Manager v2.16.19 for Ceph storage appliance.

07 Oct, 2021 Ambedded

Version 2.16.19 is the first release of UVS manager for Ceph Pacific. Due to the coming CentOS 8 phased out. We modified a significant portion of UVS codes to replace CentOS 8 to Ubuntu 18.04.LTS and upgrade Ceph to v16.2.5 Pacific.
This release also provides the new snapshot based RBD mirroring deployment and management. This improves the user experience on both RBD mirroring management and its performance.
The UVS v2.16.19 includes an automatic updater to replace the Linux and upgrade your Ceph cluster to Pacific without interrupting your storage service.
Customers can keep using the UVS v2.15.18 (Ceph Octopus) or upgrade it to this new release. If you are using the earlier UVS version, you have to upgrade v2.15.18 before you can upgrade to v2.16.19.

For more details, please refer to the v2.16.19 release notes for details.
