Abstract: 

Cinder is the block storage management service for OpenStack. Cinder allows provisioning iSCSI, fibre channel, and remote storage services to attach to your cloud instances. LVM, Ceph, and other external storage devices can be managed and consumed through the use of configurable backend storage drivers.

Led by a core member of Cinder, this session will provide an introduction to the block storage services in OpenStack as well as give an overview of the Cinder project itself.

Whether you are looking for more information on how to use block storage in OpenStack, are looking to get involved in an open source project, or are just curious about how storage fits into the cloud, this session will provide a starting point to get going.
