WIP: Dell T7910 with Proxmox VE 7.0 and External Ceph Cluster

While for my virtualisation needs I am firmly in the Red Hat camp, an article in ix 9/2021 piqued my interest.

Since I was on a week of ‘staycation’ and the T7910 was not in use, I decided to test Proxmox VE 7.0 on a Dell Precision T7910 tying in my existing Ceph Nautilus storage for both RBD and CephFS use.

GitLab Backup to Ceph Object Gateway

This is a quick braindump of setting up our home GitLab instance (on CentOS 8) to backup to an existing Ceph Object Gateway using the S3 API.
