I am looking to deploy an openstack cluster using LXD for compute and Ceph for storage, and I was running into some doubt as to whether this was possible; and doubt that nova-lxd was mature enough for production. If anyone is running nova-lxd in production, or knows anything about it, please let me know. I've had a hard time finding good informational resources on the topic, specifically relating to LXD + Ceph; which is supposedly possible, but I haven't heard if it's possible in Openstack. If you otherwise know of a resource that could be helpful to me, I would appreciate hearing it.

The documentation indicates that you can attach Ceph-based volumes to LXD instances.

Also looking into that myself. Funny, just today, James Page (from Ubuntu) gave some input in Openstack mailing list regarding Nova, LXD and Ceph: ( Apparently, further and better documentation is coming soon.

We are using Openstack's nova-compute-lxd (although we have Ceph we're not using it yet for LXD) and so far so good.
I know that this isn't quite the answer to your question, however I thought it would be a valid input.

Cheers, Luís
