[RFE] OSP-d support for multiple same type Cinder backends
Last modified: 2016-06-14 09:19:43 EDT
Description of problem:
OSP-d should support multiple same type Cinder backends.
Use case 1: You would like to use 2 external Ceph pools as rbd backend. Each pool uses different type of drives (HDD and SSD) for providing different type of storage QoS for the Cinder volumes.
Use case 2: You are using a NFS server for storing the Cinder volumes and it runs out of storage capacity. You want to scale out by adding an additional NFS storage server where to store future Cinder volumes.
This bug did not make the OSP 8.0 release. It is being deferred to OSP 10.
I suspect that this is already available in OSP8. The solution for bug 1269990 should allow having arbitrary numbers of each type of backend.
Note: this does not apply to ceph -- there is another separate rfe for that (bug 1309550)
