Description: Aaron and
returning co-host Ken Hui (@hui_kenneth) talk with John Griffith
(@jdg_8, SolidFire) about the role of an OpenStack PTL, the evolution of
Storage from Icehouse to Juno, Cinder architecture and where block
storage fits into OpenStack deployments. Music Credit: Nine Inch Nails
Ken Hui's Blog Series on Cinder:
- What is your background? What role does a PTL play in an OpenStack
project? Block storage is a vendor-heavy segment of OpenStack - how do
architectural decisions get made in Cinder?
Topic 2 - What
is the state of block storage with OpenStack in Icehouse, and where do
you expect it to go with Juno? What are the most common use cases are
you seeing today?
Topic 3 -
Now that there is such a range of ways to deliver block storage
(all-disks, hybrid disks & Flash, All-Flash), does Cinder need to
take this into consideration or is it agnostic to the storage media?
Topic 4 -
At the OpenStack Summit, we heard quite a bit about deployments using
Swift and Object Storage. Is that still the dominant use-case with
OpenStack deployments, or are block and file (Project Manilla
) growing as well?
Also, we’ll be doing live shows at the Summit in the Social Media area, so come by and visit us (or be a guest on the show)
