Subject [Propose][New Feature] Storage Snapshots
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 18:02:29 GMT
Design Spec:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/StorageSnapshot++API

Jira Ticket

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-9278


Hi All,

We plan to propose a new set of APIs to do snapshots on managed storage
backends like SolidFire. Snapshots on current managed storage stay on the
device which is contrary to what CloudStack calls snpshots. But taking
snapshots
on storage and keeping it there has its own advantages and we would ideally
like
to have both ways of doing snapshots. This proposal adds 4 new APIs to
create snapshots on backend storage.

What do you guys think of this feature? I would love to have some feedback.
I am working on making the design spec more concrete but wanted to have
a high level feedback first before starting to work on it.

Thanks,
-Syed
