Deutsche Telekom operates a growing email system with several million accounts and billions of emails stored on traditional NFS. Four years ago we introduced librmb (librados mailbox) to the community, a universal open source library used to store emails in a Ceph cluster. Librmb uses RADOS to store email directly in Ceph to achieve maximum performance through parallel access from many email gateways simultaneously, for millions of active customers. Email systems are much to complex to be simulated in a way which would allow to verify if the switch to librmb will work for a large number of users, even after intensive testing. Therefore a field test with real and active customers is necessary to provide an educated guess on the behavior of the final setup. This presentation will cover the current project status, how we run all relevant test cases, the field test setup and a progress report onto the first results and experiences from the field test with around a million customers. Previous presentations have been about the development around librmb, this talk covers bringing the project into production.
