Ghost: Greenhost cloud storage engine for Kubernetes
Greenhost cloud and
Greenhost operates two cloud platforms:
* ``_ is free (funded by Open
Technology Fund) for Internet freedom and liberation technology developers,
administrators and digital rights activists.
* the `Greenhost cloud`_ is a paid cloud platform, open to anyone.
Storage in our platforms is provided by our own fully redundant Ceph-based
storage system, so you don't need to use one of the big commercial cloud
Kubernetes at Greenhost
Besides regular stand-alone VPSs, you can also use any of our cloud platforms
to create a Kubernetes cluster spanning multiple virtual machines.
``ghost`` is a custom Kubernetes component that allows your cluster to
seemlessly provision persistent volumes on our cloud storage platform.
It consists of two components:
* a storage provisioner that detects requests for
storage (so-called Persistent Volume Claims, or PVCs) and creates Ceph-backed
virtual disks on the fly to meet the storage demands;
* a storage driver that is called by Kubernetes at the right moments to attach
these virtual disks to the virtual machines that need them, and mount the
filesystems to the right Kubernetes pod.
See the :doc:`setup instructions <setup>` to get started.
The code is available at `<>`_.

This page provides information to help you set up ghost for your Kubernetes
cluster on the Greenhost cloud. Currently this process requires a manual
confirmation by Greenhost employees, so you will need our support at some
* a Kubernetes platform running on the Greenhost cloud platform, or on;
* a functioning `Helm`_ install for that cluster.
Set permissions
The ghost storage provisioner will need to use Greenhost's API to create (and
delete) virtual disks, based on requests by the Kubernetes cluster. Because
this has obvious implications for security, and also incurs costs for the
virtual disks to the account owner, this needs special permissions to be set
for the machines that make up the cluster. We made this a manual step for now
that needs to be taken by Greenhost employees.
Please contact `our support team <Greenhost support_>`_ to request these
changes, including a list of VPSs that make up the cluster, and optionally a
label we use internally to identify the cluster for future reference.
Install ghost
1. Clone the ghost repository to the machine that you run Helm from, typically
your workstation or laptop:
git clone
cd kubernetes-ghost
2. (optional) Review the ``values.yaml`` in the top-level directory, and change as you see fit. The defaults should give you a working setup.
3. Install the ghost components to your cluster:
helm install --name=my-personal-ghost .
Check installation
You can check that the provisioner and driver are running:
kubectl get pod -n kube-system
Should list a single ``greenhost-provisioner`` pod, and one ``ghost-driver``
pod on every worker node.
If you now create a Persistent Volume Claim, the provisioner should pick this up and create a corresponding Persistent Volume. You can also check that virtual disks appear in the `listing <Greenhost cloud disk listing_>`_.
