I do not think there is any active effort to bring Ceph support to
hosted engine. Care to open an RFE in the bugzilla?

But we do not have any Ceph experts on the oVirt team at the moment so
I can't promise anything... Is there maybe a way to export Ceph using
some kind of proxy (multipath iscsi for example) that could be used
before the proper support is added?

Best regards
