For the upcoming Luminous release (12.2.2), ceph-disk will be
officially in 'deprecated' mode (bug fixes only). A large banner with
deprecation information has been added, which will try to raise

We are strongly suggesting using ceph-volume for new (and old) OSD
deployments. The only current exceptions to this are encrypted OSDs
and FreeBSD systems

Encryption support is planned and will be coming soon to ceph-volume.

A few items to consider:

* ceph-disk is expected to be fully removed by the Mimic release
* Existing OSDs are supported by ceph-volume. They can be "taken over" [0]
* ceph-ansible already fully supports ceph-volume and will soon default to it
* ceph-deploy support is planned and should be fully implemented soon
