Subject Re: [DISCUSS] CloudStack Storage Plugin for CloudByte's ElastiStor
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 06:27:51 GMT
Hi,

You are definitely free to map one of your SAN volumes to many CloudStack
volumes. I'm not sure how this would look code wise, but it should be
doable with some changes to CloudStack.

We encourage our customers to keep to smaller clusters (like four compute
nodes per cluster) as a way of improving the scalability of this one-to-one
approach.

Depending on the hypervisor, you could even have a cluster of one compute
node and have CloudStack handle HA across clusters.

Talk to you later
