Description Bertrand 2017-06-29 09:59:16 EDT
In the distributed compute use case, the single control zone hosting the controllers is separated from the multiple compute zones hosting the compute nodes.
It is assumed here that Glance will use multiple Ceph Backend Stores in respective compute zone to minimize image transfer and thus decrease instance spin up time.
In such situation it is important to be able to upload images once and replicate those on multiple Glance Backend stores as well as keeping those in sync on all remote compute zones.

Thus VM images made available through Glance will need to be replicated and synchronized on the multiple respective Ceph Backend Stores on respective compute zones.

One of the reason is that downloading an image from the central control zone over a WAN to a remote compute zone would be time consuming. 
It is critical to be able to spin up new VMs (VNFs) quickly as it is expected to launch new instances in the compute zone in less that a minute or so. 

This RFE depends on Bug 1225775 - [RFE] Glance should be able to manage multiple Ceph clusters as backends

Similar blueprint:

Also in term of image replication, there is: glance-replicator utility.

Pushing out to OSP14 for review,

I suggest to investigate Images synchronization at Kingbird level
