Subject Re: KVM + VMware (and ceph)

As previously noted, you can mix and match with some degree of 
segregation (i.e. templates must be different).

I've not tried mixing KVM + VMware recently, but i see no reason why you 
cannot do that, if i recall correctly, i've done so a year ago or so, 
when i first installed cloudstack.

As for Cephs, i have somewhat similar setup, I have beefy vSphere 
hypervisors with about 1.5tb of SSD drives on each hypervisor with 10GB 
NICs, that until recently have been idle. I'm setting up Ceph cluster on 
these and will front them with iSCSI to ESX hosts as VMFS. You can also 
look into presenting Ceph as NFS to vmware.
