Fix Version/s: 2.3
> Add IBM SmartCloud Provisioning support for VCL
> Key: VCL-537
> URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VCL-537
> Project: VCL
> Issue Type: New Feature
> Components: database, vcld (backend)
> Affects Versions: 2.2.1
> Reporter: Young-Hyun
> Fix For: 2.3
> Attachments: hslt.pm
> IBM SmartCloud Provisioning (formerly BM Service Agility Accelerator for
> Cloud (ISAAC) or High Scale Low Touch (HSLT)) is a true IaaS (Infrastructure
> as a Service) solution that can reduce costs and offer near-zero downtime and
> automated recovery. This provides new solution that provides quick cloud
> deployment and features automated provisioning, parallel scalability and
> integrated fault tolerance to increase operational efficiency and respond to
> user needs. It also provides the foundation to integrate more advanced cloud
> capabilities such as cloud service management capabilities.
> For more detail information about IBM SmartCloud Provisioning, please visit
> the following website.
> To take the advantages of the advanced features in IBM SmartCloud
> Provisioning, I write the new VCL provisioning module called hslt.pm. The
> new module can achieve the fast VCL reservation by creating paths (links) to
> the virtual machine images instead of copying the original images to the
> instance directory in NFS file systems. For example, the main portion of the
> reservation time depends on the time for copying original images to the
> instance directory in NFS systems and it is not trivial at all. But IBM
> SmartCloud Provisioning does not require to copy images themselves. Instead,
> it creates links (paths) to the images in the hypervisor nodes and the
> hypervisors will map the links and load the images. This can reduce costs for
> both reservation times and storage usages.
> Please take a look the hslt.pm module and contact me if you have questions.
