Simple clustered Ceph deployment

MicroCeph is the easiest way to get up and running with Ceph. It is focused on providing a modern deployment and management experience to Ceph administrators and storage software developers.

The below commands will set you up with a testing environment on a single machine using file-backed OSDs - you'll need about 15 GiB of available space on your root drive:

 sudo snap install microceph
 sudo snap refresh --hold microceph
 sudo microceph cluster bootstrap
 sudo microceph disk add loop,4G,3
 sudo ceph status

You're done!

You can remove everything cleanly with:

 sudo snap remove microceph
