VMware iSCSI


VMware integration with Charmed Ceph refers to VMware-based clients (iSCSI initiators) accessing block devices based on Ceph RBD images (iSCSI targets). This support is enabled in Charmed Ceph via the ceph-iscsi charm.

iSCSI is a network protocol that provides block-level access to storage devices by carrying SCSI commands over a TCP/IP network. It allows a network host to access central storage resources as if the storage was a locally connected device.

VMware iSCSI Ceph integration with Charmed Ceph is documented in the OpenStack Charms Deployment Guide under Ceph-backed iSCSI targets for VMware initiators.
