cinder-agent

  1. 1. cinder-agent The client service for Cinder by Akira Yoshiyama<akirayoshiyama@gmail.com>
  2. 2. Current Nova and Cinder cinder-api REST nova-api RPC REST RPC VM VM server-side cinder-volume volume driver Storage Control client-sidenova-compute volume driver client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  3. 3. Nova still has many client-side volume drivers. Complex client-side cinder-api RESTvolume capability and nova-api many volume drivers RPC in nova-compute REST RPC VM VM server-side cinder-volume volume driver Storage Controlnova-compute client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  4. 4. nova-compute has to make many REST requests to attach/detach a volume. complex REST REST requests cinder-api nova-apiattachment/ per detachment RPC REST RPC VM VM server-side cinder-volume volume driver Storage Control nova-compute client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  5. 5. We have to use same version of Nova and Cinder. Old REST transaction REST cinder-api for attachment/ nova-api detachment RPC may be changed. REST RPC VM VM Old old cinder-volume volume driver Storage Controlnova-compute client-side volume driver Server/client-side volume drivers may not keep iSCSI, etc. VM host compatibility Storage between versions.
  6. 6. Other software has to implementvolume drivers to use Cinder service. cinder-api RPC VM VM REST OpenNebula, Volume drivers in CloudStack nova-compute cinder-volume server-side and so on cant be volume driver used with programs written in Storage Control client-side Java/C/Ruby/... volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  7. 7. cinder-agent● nova-compute should drop most of client-side volume capability and drivers.● Take them to new client-side service of cinder. client-side new! volume driver nova-compute cinder-agent VM host
  8. 8. Nova and Cinder with cinder-agent REST nova-api cinder-api REST VM RPC VM RPC nova-compute server-side cinder-volume volume driver RPC cinder-agent Storage Control client-side volume driver client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  9. 9. nova-compute becomes simple.REST nova-api cinder-api RESTVM RPC VM RPC nova-compute server-side cinder-volume without driver volume RPC cinder-agent client-side volume Storage Control client-side volume driver capability and drivers client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  10. 10. REST Request to attach/detach a volume becomes simple.REST Only one REST request nova-api cinder-api to attach/detach a volume. RESTVM RPC VM RPC nova-compute server-side cinder-volume volume driver RPC cinder-agent Storage Control client-side volume driver client-side volume driver Complex transactions between server/client-side iSCSI, etc. Storage volume capability VM host via Cinder RPC
  11. 11. Nova can be used with newer/older version of Cinder. REST Simple REST request nova-api Older to attach/detach a volume cinder-apiis easy to keep its compatibility. REST VM RPC VM RPC nova-compute Older server-side cinder-volume volume driver RPC Older cinder-agent Storage Control client-side volume driver client-side volume driver iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  12. 12. Its easy to use other software with Cinder. cinder-api RESTVM VM VM RPC OpenNebula, CloudStack and so on server-side cinder-volume cinder-agent volume driver RPC cinder-agent client-side Storage Control client-side volume driver client-side volume driver client-side volume driver Other software just makes volume driver a simple REST request to attach/detach a volume. iSCSI, etc. Storage VM host
  13. 13. ConclusionBenefit of cinder-agent:– makes nova-compute simple and free for volume.– makes REST requests to attach/detach a volume simple and easy to keep its compatibility.– allows to use Nova with newer/older Cinder.– makes other software easy to use Cinder. Cinder becomes a stand-alone software by cinder-agent.
