Cinder 102: Pouring a solid foundation for block storage services

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

Cinder, at its core, provides basic provisioning and management of block storage volumes to users of OpenStack clouds. However, beyond basic volumes and snapshots, there is a lot of advanced capability for cloud administrators that can be leveraged to provide value added capability to end users, as well as for managing the lifecycle of volumes and storage subsystems.



This talk serves as a “102” level discussion of Cinder and will cover:


·      Consistency groups


·      Replicated volumes


·      Backup/Restore of volumes


·      Administrative operations


o   Volume migration


o   Foreign volume import/export


o   Resource pool management


o   Scheduler optimizations


Attendees will leave with a greater appreciation for the art-of-the-possible with Cinder in the Kilo release, knowledge of the various tools available to Cinder administrators, and practical knowledge around how a Cinder deployment can be optimized for both end-user and cloud administrator outcomes.
