The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The open infrastructure landscape is changing, and so is the Summit. Now that users are integrating dozens of open source tools into a modern stack that reaches well beyond the scope of OpenStack, we’re re-organizing the event to focus on specific problem domains like container infrastructure, edge computing and CI/CD and we are focusing on the hard work of integrating all of these tools developed in disparate communities. This is the essential work of 2018 and beyond, to ensure that open infrastructure is truly a viable path for operators.

All you need to know about OpenStack Block Storage in less than an hour

Whether you are a new or an old OpenStack deployment, there is always this good old problem of making your choice of storage for your openstack workloads. OpenStack itself provides Block and Object Storage to choose from and once this decision is made, an Admin has to choose from various storage backends like LVM, Ceph, etc.

In this session, we will take a plunge into the world of Cinder and talk about various flexibilities and features provided to the user by Cinder itself and what factors user must consider before choosing a convenient backend for their storage based on the needs of their OpenStack environment. We will touch base upon the various developments that have happened over time and what Cinder looks like today. We will also talk about why it is important to have the correct storage backend for your OpenStack environment and what all one should research over it.


What can I expect to learn?

Attendees will get to learn everything about Cinder features, how it works, how volume placement takes place, the past and present of Cinder and what are various tactics through which one can choose a best backend for their openstack cloud
