SIG Status: Approved


The CentOS Storage Special Interest Group (SIG) is a collection of like-minded individuals coming together to ensure that CentOS is a suitable platform for many different storage solutions. This group will ensure that all Open Source storage options seeking to utilize CentOS as a delivery platform have a voice in packaging, orchestration, deployment, and related work.


Participating Projects

User Documentation

The Storage SIG provides centos-release-<project> packages in the CentOS Extras repository. This makes it easy for users to install projects from the Storage SIG, only two steps are needed, i.e.:

# yum install centos-release-gluster
# yum install glusterfs-server

Or for example for Ceph:

# yum install centos-release-ceph-luminous
# yum install ceph-{mon,osd,...}

Available release packages that provide different repositories:

  • centos-release-gluster38 (provides centos-release-gluster = 3.8)

  • centos-release-gluster40 (short-term-maintenance release will be End-Of-Life when Gluster 4.1 is available)

  • centos-release-gluster41 (provides centos-release-gluster = 4.1)

Again for Ceph that would be:

  • centos-release-ceph-jewel

  • centos-release-ceph-luminous


  • centos-release-storage-common (base dependency for all Storage SIG release packages)

Documentation that describes how to configure and use the projects have their own pages:
