OpenStack Icehouse : Use Virtual Storage(Multi-Backends)
2014/06/26
 
It's possible to use the Virtual Storage provided by Cinder if an Instance needs more disks.
Configure Virtual storage with NFS and GlusterFS multi-backend on here.

NFS server is required to be running on your LAN.
On this example, configure "/storage" directory on "nfs.srv.world" as a shared directory.
[2]
GlusterFS server is required to be running on your LAN. This example uses a replication volume "vol_distributed" provided by "gfs01" and "gfs02".
