Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-4773) Generic SSVM Copy
Date Mon, 30 Sep 2013 21:38:23 GMT
Chris Suich created CLOUDSTACK-4773:

             Summary: Generic SSVM Copy
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4773
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
            Reporter: Chris Suich

The storage subsystem currently uses a number of hypervisor APIs for transferring files between
data stores (both primary and secondary). However, while implementing the storage subsystem
API as a storage provider, we have discovered that there is a need for a generic copy method
that can copy files between (almost) any source and destination. For example, if we need to
copy a file from our storage to S3 or Swift. It would make more sense for the SSVM to provide
a generic method for copying files than for us to implement a copy method for S3, Swift, etc.
Additionally, the SSVM already has NFS volumes mounted and has easier access to primary and
secondary storage.
