OpenStack Manila is a shared file system as a service, and it’s deployed in public and private clouds of different scales. It supports a variety of network file system protocols such as NFS, CIFS, CephFS, and several open source and vendor storage back ends.
Cloud administrators that have been using storage devices to provision shares and their snapshots now have the ability to import existing shares when migrating over to Manila. Starting from Stein release, Manila is capable to adopt and manage the life cycle of existing shares in a multi-tenant environment.
We will demo how the administrator can bring an existent share under Manila’s management, while guaranteeing the multi-tenant isolation.
