In this session, you'll learn how RBD works, including how it:
Uses RADOS classes to make access easier from user space and within the Linux kernel.
Implements thin provisioning.
Builds on RADOS self-managed snapshots for cloning and differential backups.
Increases performance with caching of various kinds.
Uses watch/notify RADOS primitives to handle online management operations.
Integrates with QEMU, libvirt, and OpenStack.
