Subject Re: [DISCUSS] CloudStack Storage Plugin for CloudByte's ElastiStor
Date Thu, 08 Aug 2013 06:22:15 GMT
Hi Mike,

I have gone through the mentioned jira as well the following article in
dZone.
http://architects.dzone.com/articles/cloudstack-storage

It describes the problem & solution pretty well.

However, do we have any alternatives w.r.t one-to-one mapping between a CS
Volume & a SAN Volume ? Is this approach scalable ?

Regards,
Amit
