Multi-backend support for Cinder

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Most drivers in Cinder don't deal with local storage rather have a backend storage and an associated api. As an operator, managing multiple backends with Cinder becomes a hassle as each backend requires a single (or more for HA) instance of volume-manager.

This sessions wishes to answer the following and more:
- Who would use it?
- What are the benefits?
- What are the downsides?
- Do the drivers need to change to accomodate this?
- How do we schedule, how to choose the right backend?
- Does scheduling support for this fall under volume_types or a new volume_backend?
