Manila Share Data Does Not Simply Move and Protect Itself, Oh Wait, It Does!

Typical datacenters comprise of products from multiple storage vendors, and usually no two products behave the same. Thus, operators often rely on complex scripts and tools to move data, provide high availability and protect it from disasters. As a multi-storage abstraction, OpenStack Manila is invested in addressing such requirements through a consistent API to avoid vendor lock-in.

We have made tremendous progress with features such as Migration and Replication, and a new service that can handle data plane operations and assist in moving data between shared file systems. We enhanced the design of storage availability zones as failure domains and allowed for them to be consistent with Nova and Neutron availability zones.

We will discuss use cases and demonstrate the use of these features while indicating best practices and troubleshooting tips that might come in handy when using both these features in your data center. We’ll also discuss the roadmap for these features.

What can I expect to learn?

Attendees would learn how to take advantage of the new APIs introduced and understand the use cases that motivated the design of the share migration, share replication and data copy service features in manila. The common API and workflows have an important use case of helping OpenStack consumers avoid vendor lock-in.

Attendees would leave with knowledge on best practice configuration and troubleshooting steps when using these features. We would also introduce the roadmap items and invite feedback from the audience.
