Block storage replication has been available in the Cinder code since Juno, but has experienced many challenges. An effort is underway for Liberty to make replication more feature full, working, stable and usable. This session will explain the state of replication as of the Liberty release and where future enhancements will focus. A demo will be shown and a feedback taken for M release planning.
Key Take-aways for Attendees:
- Understand the use-cases for replication in OpenStack
- Awareness of any limitations in replication for the Liberty release
- Configuration options and requirements for replication
- Walk through an example configuration of block replication on at least one storage platform
