Nova volume storage
Hi everyone!

I was wondering which kind of backend storage are you using for your
nova-volume?

I found a lot of solutions like:

- LVM local
- Sheepdog
- Nexenta for NFS or NFS itself
- SAN
- GlusterFS
- NetApp

Any ideas? Feedback?

I like the GlusterFS ability to use both NFS and GlusterFS as mount point
for client. They also have this 'OSConnect' functionality which provides
connectivity to nova-volume and apparently performs live migration without
downtime.

Thank you!

Privet Tomasz,

Do you use rbd in production? Any restrictions?

Hi Razique,

Are your SAN LUNs attached to each compute nodes or just to controllers?

Re: Nova volume storage [ In reply to ]
Yes. I works perfectly (with xfs as storage backend).

Re: Nova volume storage [ In reply to ]
Thank you for your answers.

Apparently there are some fans of RDB even if I omitted this one.
But as I know it's not release as 1.0 yet.

So does RDB ready and enough stable for production? (out of the box)

Thank you!
