Hi, Hm, looks like I was a bit confused as to the procedure of submitting a blueprint and a spec for a new Glance image backend driver - and yeah, the actual text of the "Reviewers" section of the spec should have made me at least ask on the list... So here I am, asking, and sorry for the prematurely filed blueprint.
So, what do you peope think about a new image backend driver, using snapshots in a StorPool distributed storage cluster? The idea is that since we already have an approved Cinder blueprint for volumes and we are on the way of getting an approved Nova blueprint for attaching StorPool-backed Cinder volumes, it might be nice to also have Glance support, so that creating volumes from images and creating images from volumes would be a breeze. This will also help with another Nova spec that I'll file today - using StorPool volumes instead of local files for the Nova VM images; then cloning a Glance image to a Nova VM image will also be a breeze. Here's some more information: - StorPool distributed storage: http://www.storpool.com/ - my prematurely filed blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/glance/+spec/storpool-image-store - my prematurely filed spec: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/137360/ - the Cinder volume support blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/cinder/+spec/storpool-block-driver - the Nova "attach StorPool-backed Cinder volumes" blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/libvirt-storpool-volume-attach Please feel free to ask for any additional information and clarifications, and once again, sorry for filing a blueprint against the rules!
