Tuning QUIC protocol for Ceph workloads

QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) is a general-purpose transport layer network protocol designed by Google offering significant advantages over TCP, such as greatly reduced latency. This project aims to utilize the strengths of QUIC for communication between the components of Red Hat Ceph Storage, particularly between Ceph Object Gateway (RGW) and Ceph clients. To that end, researchers will study the characteristics of the workloads in the relevant use cases and adapt and tune QUIC accordingly, possibly resulting in a new protocol variation and/or implementation.
