Hang on here. Are you saying that Salsa is using GKE? Or is it still for
storage? In the later case, how is setting-up a Ceph cluster or Swift
related to the storage need?

Could you also describe what the need is? If I understood correctly, it
would be an object store, right? Or do you also need block storage? In
the former case, swift is best. In the later case, Ceph is preferred. We
could even do both if we need to, and have enough hardware to play with.

I get that. I suppose you remembered that I volunteered twice already
for helping with Salsa. It'd be with great pleasure that I get involved.
The only thing, is that I need hardware to play with, and probably will
need the root to be able to do the setup. This means dealing with DSA
team, and I'm not sure how they see it yet. It'd be great if we could
have their view here.
