Hello Manila Team, We identified use cases for Manila during an internal workshop with our operators. I would like to share them with you and update the wiki  since it seems to be outdated.
Before that I would like to gather feedback and you might help me with identifying things that aren’t implemented yet. Our list: 1.) Create a share and use it in a tenant Initial creation of a shared storage volume and assign it to several VM’s 2.) Assign an preexisting share to a VM with Manila Import an existing Share with data and it to several VM’s in case of migrating an existing production - services to Openstack. 3.) External consumption of a share Accommodate and provide mechanisms for last-mile consumption of shares by consumers of the service that aren't mediated by Nova. 4.) Cross Tenant sharing Coordinate shares across tenants 5.) Detach a share and don’t destroy data (deactivate) Share is flagged as inactive and data are not destroyed for later usage or in case of legal requirements. 6.) Unassign and delete data of a share Destroy entire share with all data and free space for further usage. 7.) Resize Share Resize existing and assigned share on the fly. 8.) Copy existing share Copy existing share between different storage technologies Regards Marc Deutsche Telekom : https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Manila/usecases _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
