Subject Re: [DISCUSS] CloudStack Storage Plugin for CloudByte's ElastiStor
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 06:06:38 GMT
Hi Amit,

As I mentioned on a different thread, I would recommend looking at the
SolidFire plug-in.

Also, John Burwell and I can work with you on changes in 4.3 in the storage
framework that might impact your development.

The SolidFire plug-in was designed to provide Min and Max IOPS guarantees
to CloudStack data volumes. In this model, the CloudStack volume maps on to
a single SAN volume (as opposed to the traditional technique in CloudStack
where a volume (say, on a SAN) would house many CloudStack volumes).

Also, feel free to a look at the JIRA ticket I wrote up for 4.2:
