[SOLVED] Guest OpenMediaVault as a backup appliance


Oct 17, 2018

I'm a happy user of the 5.3-5 PVE working with a Ceph cluster on 3 nodes.

I'm facing an issue regarding the backup.

Could mounting an OMV appliance in the cluster be an acceptable solution to provide an "external" NFS mounting point for the backup service of PVE?

Using the HA services and cleverly designed replication startegy in CEPH should provide with a robust distributed backup infrastructure inherently attached to the cluster.

I would just have to house my 3 servers in different location to face any potential risks at a low overall cost.
Nevermind. I were trying to find solution to a non-existent problem...

CephFS is waaaaaaay more robust and usefull in my current usecase.
