The multi-release, multi-project road to volume multi-attach

While the number of public and private cloud deployments is rapidly growing the transition towards cloud-native applications is still in progress. It is crucial to provide support for different kinds of workloads by adding functionality even if it is considered somewhat old-fashioned.

Development of the volume multi-attach feature started in 2014 and the first version was released in Queens. We will guide you through the journey of the development process and beyond the history lesson will highlight the use cases behind the high demand from users and vendors alike.

You will learn about the functionality including the API design, caveats and efforts put into the CI testing with Tempest and Zuulv3 and plans for improvements. This talk will be valuable for operators, users, and contributors and give a glimpse into the work of a complicated cross-project change developed by numerous contributors from different vendors.
