When Florian Haas and I presented our Ceph Tutorial at linux.conf.au 2013, we used Debian VM images, mostly because Florian already had them, and they worked. I'd like to replicate this, but as a Studio Appliance, so people can go download it, deploy it, and play with Ceph on openSUSE and/or SLES.
Tim Serong originated this idea.
I plan to work on this project.
Initially unclear on:

by Tim Serong: Obvious irritation/problem for ad-hoc appliance deployment is injecting hostname & ip address into ceph config. This should be mitigated by deploying in the same way the upstream chef cookbooks do it, i.e. minimal config file with just initial mons specified, then create mons and osds on each node using the ceph CLI tools and rely on the init script in Ceph >= 0.58 to do the right thing with what it finds.
