Sounds great, really looking forward to the new ceph release becoming stable.

What's the general opinion regarding incremental backups with a dirty map like feature? http://wiki.qemu.org/Features/IncrementalBackup

I see that as a very important and missing feature.

> Hi all,
> We are very happy to announce the final release of our Proxmox VE 5.0 -
> based on the great Debian 9 codename "Stretch" and a Linux Kernel 4.10.
> New Proxmox VE Storage Replication
> Replicas provide asynchronous data replication between two or multiple
> nodes in a cluster, thus minimizing data loss in case of failure. For all
> organizations using local storage the Proxmox replication feature is a great
> option to increase data redundancy for high I/Os avoiding the need of
> complex shared or distributed storage configurations.
> => https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage_Replication
> With Proxmox VE 5.0 Ceph RBD becomes the de-facto standard for
> distributed storage. Packaging is now done by the Proxmox team. The Ceph
> Luminous is not yet production ready but already available for testing.
> If you use Ceph, follow the recommendations below.
> We also have a simplified procedure for disk import from different
> hypervisors. You can now easily import disks from VMware, Hyper-V, or
> other hypervisors via a new command line tool called ‘qm importdisk’.
> Other new features are the live migration with local storage via QEMU,
> added USB und Host PCI address visibility in the GUI, bulk actions and filtering
> options in the GUI and an optimized NoVNC console.
> And as always we have included countless bugfixes and improvements on a
> lot of places.
