Cinder enables block storage service for the compute (Nova) component of OpenStack. The code was originally part of the Nova project, but was more or less “copy/pasted” into its very own project. Cinder is currently being incubated within the OpenStack Essex release.
Being able to access block storage for compute is critical. You want to know why it’s so important? Well, I’m not telling you. Not because I don’t know, but because I want you to be stewed in anticipation.* Besides, we’ll have someone infinitely more qualified than I, who can explain the significance of Cinder.
The man of the hour will be Robert Esker. Robert is an Architect at NetApp and he’ll discuss the Cinder project and what the future might look like in the upcoming Folsom and Grizzly releases.
NetApp is graciously sponsoring and hosting this month’s Meetup. Per usual, food, beer and soda will be provided.
Important: Parking is available on the lower level behind the building. Take the elevator up to the 7th floor and don’t forget to bring your ticket for validation.
* I think I know why block storage service is critical. Maybe. Kinda.
Hopefully yes. But then again… Probably not.
And by “probably”, I mean absolutely.
