I have a ceph replicated storage that I would like to be able to use as a backup target for VM snapshot backups, I understand ceph is RBD so I need to create a file system, should I put NFS on ceph? I've searched and searched but I must be using the wrong terms... Any pointers on how to create a file system that can be used as a backup target are really appreciated !

Hi,
I'd suggest using CephFS instead of creating something on top of RBD.
