>From what I've read there won’t be support for Ceph in Creedence (Xenserver
6.5) but it is on the cards for the following release (as should NFSv4 and a
Centos 7 dom0). There's a blog post from Tim Mackey at:
http://xenserver.org/discuss-virtualization/virtualization-blog/entry/beyond-creedence-xenserver-2015-planning.html

and a Youtube video with a few updates here:

All looks promising but I'm impatient :-(
