Release 1.1.0
New features:

- Implement [client writeback cache](docs/config/
- Add the third I/O mode: [O_DIRECT|O_SYNC](docs/config/ (good for Optane)
- Reduce load on etcd by splitting OSD lease and statistics reporting intervals:
  [etcd_stats_interval](docs/config/ (default 30 sec)
- Make MON automatically filter OSDs by layout (block_size/immediate_commit/bitmap_granularity)
  to prevent "refusing to start PGs of this pool" errors on misconfiguration
- Support running fio benchmarks on systems without io_uring
- Make QEMU driver compatible with QEMU 8.1
- Document usage of [vhost-user-blk](docs/usage/

Bug fixes:

- Fix resizing disks in QEMU driver (for example, in Proxmox)
- Fix "unexpected result" in Proxmox driver by making CLI flush output on exit
- Remove unneeded block_size mismatch warnings on pools without matching PGs
- Fix possible segfault in vitastor-cli ls -l (usually with deleted pools)
- Fix QEMU driver compatibility with systems without io_uring
- Fix monitor eating 100% CPU when etcd is down (caused by infinite retries)
- Fix potential incorrect write processing with snapshots (not caught in tests
  but could probably lead to client hangs)
- Fix buffer insertion in cluster_client (not caught in tests but could
  probably lead to incorrect writes in rare cases)
- Fix rare OSD crash during sync operation processing
- Fix a reenterability issue in cluster_client not reproducible in QEMU/fio,
  but reproducible with the currently developed K/V database implementation
- Fix deletion of the first modified object - OSDs could crash if you modified
  the same object a lot of times, then deleted it, and then modified it again
- Fix the fio_sec_osd test tool

The Idea

Make Clustered Block Storage Fast Again.

Vitastor is a distributed block SDS, direct replacement of Ceph RBD and internal SDS's of public clouds. However, in contrast to them, Vitastor is fast and simple at the same time. The only thing is it's slightly young :-).

Vitastor is architecturally similar to Ceph which means strong consistency, primary-replication, symmetric clustering and automatic data distribution over any number of drives of any size with configurable redundancy (replication or erasure codes/XOR).

Vitastor targets primarily SSD and SSD+HDD clusters with at least 10 Gbit/s network, supports TCP and RDMA and may achieve 4 KB read and write latency as low as ~0.1 ms with proper hardware which is ~10 times faster than other popular SDS's like Ceph or internal systems of public clouds.

Vitastor supports QEMU, NBD, NFS protocols, OpenStack, Proxmox, Kubernetes drivers. More drivers may be created easily.

Read more details below in the documentation.

Proxy Programs may be made public not only under the terms of the same license, but also under the terms of any GPL-Compatible Free Software License, as listed by the Free Software Foundation. This is a stricter copyleft license than the Affero GPL.

Please note that VNPL doesn't require you to open the code of proprietary software running inside a VM if it's not specially designed to be used with Vitastor.

Basically, you can't use the software in a proprietary environment to provide its functionality to users without opensourcing all intermediary components standing between the user and Vitastor or purchasing a commercial license from the author 😀.

Client libraries (cluster_client and so on) are dual-licensed under the same VNPL 1.1 and also GNU GPL 2.0 or later to allow for compatibility with GPLed software like QEMU and fio.
