DataCore’s Cinder support for OpenStack Integration

DataCore Software has developed a Block Storage driver for Cinder which connects the OpenStack Cinder service to SANsymphony virtualization software. OpenStack Integration extends the benefits of the advanced data services offered in SANsymphony architecture while providing block storage for compute instances in OpenStack. This integration works with OpenStack version 1.3 for Mitaka as well as Icehouse release

The DataCore OpenStack Cinder Volume Driver is completely integrated with the OpenStack Block Storage Cinder service and the public APIs of SANsymphony software. When volumes are created in OpenStack, the driver creates the same virtual disks in SANsymphony. When a volume is attached to an instance in OpenStack, a Linux host is registered and the same virtual disk is served to the host in SANsymphony. The DataCore OpenStack Cinder Volume Driver and Python scripts are installed on the Linux host.

A key component of OpenStack Block Storage is the cinder-volume service that manages block storage devices and responds to read and write requests sent to the Block Storage Service to maintain state.

The cinder-volume service can interact with a variety of storage providers through a driver architecture, SANsymphony storage virtualization software being one. The OpenStack Block Storage configuration, which includes the volume driver setting, is specified in the cinder.conf file that is located in /etc/cinder directory by default. OpenStack uses the INI file format for configuration files.
