Virtual Storage Manager (VSM) is a web-based management application for Ceph storage systems. VSM creates, manages, and monitors a Ceph cluster. VSM simplifies the creation and day-to-day management of a Ceph cluster for cloud and data center storage administrators.

VSM provides a unified, consistent view of a Ceph storage system. The VSM web interface provides the operator with the ability to monitor overall cluster status, manage cluster hardware and storage capacity, inspect detailed operation status of Ceph subsystems, manage Ceph interoperation with OpenStack Cinder, and manage VSM users. VSM can be optionally connected to an OpenStack Nova server; when so connected, VSM is able to attach Ceph pools to the OpenStack Cinder multi-backend service.
