Plugin description

SolidFire plugin for Fuel extends Mirantis OpenStack functionality by adding support for SolidFire all Flash block storage cluster.

The SolidFire cluster is an iSCSI block storage device used as a Cinder backend.

Requirements

Requirement Version/Comment
Mirantis OpenStack compatibility >= 6.1
Access to SolidFire MVIP via cinder-volume node
Access to SolidFire SVIP via compute/cinder-volume nodes
iSCSI initiator on all compute/cinder-volume nodes

Limitations

Currently Fuel doesn’t support multi-backend.

SolidFire configuration

Before starting a deployment there are some things that you should verify:

  1. Your SolidFire Cluster can route 10G Storage Network to all Compute nodes as well as the Cinder Control/Manager node.
  2. Create an account on the SolidFire cluster to use as the OpenStack Administrator account (use the login/password for this account as san_login/password settings).
  3. Obtain the MVIP address from the SolidFire cluster (uses as the san_ip)

SolidFire Cinder plugin installation

All of the needed code for using SolidFire in an OpenStack deployment is included in the upstream OpenStack distribution. There are no additional libraries, software packages or licenses.
