 In cloud environments, there are a variety of systems running for different workloads. Each workload tends to have its own requirements, such as reliability, performance, and functionality. Therefore, cloud systems need to provide users with choices which can satisfy requirements from these workloads.
This presentation focuses on the choices of block storages for OpenStack. In OpenStack, block storages are managed by a component called Cinder. Cinder manages multiple types of data resources as block storages via the plugin for each data resource.
