Not nice to hear, similar to centos I guess. For now I am sticking to my centos7 till it
is eol. So I have a few years left to decide. You can of course get an el7/el8 license, I
think you will be having the best match.
Maybe in a few years the distribution does not matter any more, because everything will be
running in container images.

Subject: [ceph-users] SUSE POC - Dead in the water
For the past several months I had been building a sizable Ceph cluster
will be up to 10PB with between 20 and 40 OSD servers this year.
A few weeks ago I was informed that SUSE is shutting down SES and will
longer be selling it. We haven't licensed our proof of concept cluster
that is currently at 14 OSD nodes, but it looks like SUSE is not going
be the answer here.
I'm seeking recommendations for consulting help on this project since
has let me down.
I have Ceph installed and operating, however, I've been struggling with
getting the pool configured properly for CephFS and getting very poor
performance. The OSD servers have TLC NVMe for DB, and Optane NVMe for
WAL, so I should be seeing decent performance with the current cluster.
I'm not opposed to completely switching OS distributions. Ceph on SUSE
our first SUSE installation. Almost everything else we run is on
but that may change thanks to IBM cannibalizing CentOS.
Please reach out to me if you can recommend someone to sell us
hours and/or a support contract.
