We are very happy to announce the final release of our Proxmox VE 5.1 -
based on the latest Debian 9.2 and a modern Linux Kernel 4.13 with ZFS
With Proxmox VE 5.1 Ceph Luminous is finally production-ready and fully
supported by the Proxmox support team. The new BlueStore storage backend
for Ceph boosts performance (in some cases up to 2x for writes), got
full data checksumming and built-in compression - BlueStore is the new
default for OSDs.
And as always we have included countless bugfixes and improvements on a
lot of places.
