openATTIC 2.0.3 beta has been released

We're happy to announce that openATTIC version 2.0.3 beta has now been released!

We're trying to stick to the core mantra of Open Source, by releasing early and often. We intend to establish a cadence of publishing a new release build roughly every 5-6 weeks. For the impatient, we also provide nightly builds that contain all changes that have been committed into the development branch and have passed the test suites.

One notable highlight in the 2.0.3 release is the inclusion of some additional Ceph support in the Web UI: it is now possible to review the CRUSH map and perform some basic editing of the Ceph cluster layout (replication rules, placements) this way. We're very eager on receiving feedback on this functionality, as it's currently still under development.

We've also made some progress in adding DRBD support to the openATTIC RESTful API - it's now possible to create and delete mirrored volumes. However, web UI support and a method to resize existing mirrored volumes is still in the works - we hope to deliver these missing pieces with the next release.

In addition to these new features, we fixed several bugs and usability issues. We also added numerous additional tests to the API and UI test suites.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release!

We hope you will give this new version a try. Please note that this is still a beta version - handle with care and make sure to create backups of your data.

As usual, feedback is very welcome. If you would like to get in touch with us, consider joining our openATTIC Users Google Group, or visit our #openattic channel on
