What's New in OpenStack File Share Services (Manila)

Manila provides multi-tenant file-share services to OpenStack. It can work with default storage types, or through its driver model, with a range of storage backends. The ability to provide file-shares to serve existing applications, containers, DevOps environments, departmental shares, and other use cases broadens OpenStack’s storage capabilities.  As a result, with OpenStack rolling out in high-profile enterprises, Manila is rapidly gaining momentum with new features. Over the last cycle, the community has worked on a number of useful enhancements, including an updated installer for Fuel. Topics covered will include:

  • Share Groups for performing tasks on groups of file shares
  • Enhanced snapshot restoration capabilities
  • Share migration and retyping capabilities
  • Access Groups for shares to specify the same access policies to multiple shares
  • Deployment using the Fuel plugin for Manila.
  • and more.

 Multiple demos will be included!

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will get to learn about OpenStack Manila, updates that were made for the Newton cycle, and deployment using Fuel.
