With an estimated 15 billion devices connected to internet in 2015 generating exabytes of data, there is a huge influx in the amount of data generated, that puts a severe stress on the underlying storage. This explosion in data growth along with corresponding expenditure on infrastructure has catalyzed the need for a fundamental shift in the way we look at storage. The solution to this problem is Software Defined Storage (SDS), which is also the natural fit for the cloud model. OpenStack is fairly mature for block storage (Cinder) and object storage (Swift), but many current business applications require file storage. Enter Manila - the new service that provides an automated, on-demand and scalable service for delivering shared and distributed file systems all using a standardized API native to OpenStack. From the set of available Manila drivers, we’ll focus today on GlusterFS, the founding SDS in the Manila project and an open, and proven distributed storage system. In this presentation, we’ll review Manila backed by the GlusterFS scale-out storage system and explore the value of RDMA in SDS system like GlusterFS in certain use cases.
