Ceph Meetup Berlin - Followup: librmb


On Monday I presented at the Ceph Meetup in Berlin about a new project sponsored by Deutsche Telekom to store emails on Ceph. The project consists of librmb and rbox. While librmb (librados mailbox) is a generic abstraction layer to store emails in RADOS, rbox is a plugin for Dovecot to make use of the new library.


The code is released under LGPLv2.1 and now available at github. The project is still under heavy development and not in a released state. Therefore the code and APIs can still change, but we really would like to invite every interested party to check it out, test the code and report findings and bugs back to the project. Be part of the project and contribute code! We plan to move the librmb code later to the Ceph project and the rbox plugin to Dovecot. For more information on the project check out the README or take a look at my presentation from the Meetup.

I would like to thank our partners in this project: Tallence, Wido den Hollander (42on.com), and SUSE.
