Panel: OpenStack and Block Storage...Where To From Here? (Seacliff AB)
The purpose of this session is to drive more awareness to the Nova Volumes effort and help facilitate a discussion around the possible directions and extensions to Nova Volumes.
Bringing together Nova Volumes contributors and implementers, this presentation will be a detailed conversation around the past, present and future of the block storage components of the Nova project. Led by the moderator, panelists will briefly review their current block storage effort in Nova Volumes and talk through targeted use cases. The panelists will discuss their experiences with Nova Volumes to date, where they are heading and how they want to see the block storage specific efforts evolve from where they are today.
For the remainder of the session, the panel moderator will help facilitate a discussion with the panelists and the audience around the possible directions and extensions to Nova Volumes including current integrations, incremental improvements, critical enhancements and weighing the costs/benefits of block storage as a separate project.
