- Implement automatic OSD activation via udev and simple on-disk superblock storage - Add a new `vitastor-disk` tool and merge all disk-related functionality there. Now it can prepare new OSD disks, upgrade plain old systemd units to the new scheme, resize OSD data area, manage OSD services by disk paths, manage superblocks, automatically check and disable disk cache, dump and write back journal and metadata. - Add a documentation section about `vitastor-disk` (read it if you want details!) - Install systemd services during package installation instead of the older method of manually creating them via separate shell scripts - Add a new `make-etcd` script that reuses /etc/vitastor/vitastor.conf to configure etcd - Allow to configure block_size, bitmap_granularity and immediate_commit per-pool - Fix "fatal error: tried to overwrite non-zero metadata entry" which was possible in some cases after unclean OSD shutdown (caused by old metadata entries not being zeroed)

Make Clustered Block Storage Fast Again.
Vitastor is a distributed block SDS, direct replacement of Ceph RBD and internal SDS's of public clouds. However, in contrast to them, Vitastor is fast and simple at the same time. The only thing is it's slightly young :-).
Vitastor is architecturally similar to Ceph which means strong consistency, primary-replication, symmetric clustering and automatic data distribution over any number of drives of any size with configurable redundancy (replication or erasure codes/XOR).
Vitastor targets SSD and SSD+HDD clusters with at least 10 Gbit/s network, supports TCP and RDMA and may achieve 4 KB read and write latency as low as ~0.1 ms with proper hardware which is ~10 times faster than other popular SDS's like Ceph or internal systems of public clouds.
Vitastor supports QEMU, NBD, NFS protocols, OpenStack, Proxmox, Kubernetes drivers. More drivers may be created easily.
Read more details below in the documentation.

Basically, you can't use the software in a proprietary environment to provide its functionality to users without opensourcing all intermediary components standing between the user and Vitastor or purchasing a commercial license from the author 😀.
