Abstract: 

OpenStack is an open source cloud operating system that controls pools of compute, storage, and networking. It is currently being developed by thousands of developers from hundreds of companies across the globe, and is the basis of multiple public and private cloud offerings. In this presentation I will outline the storage aspects of OpenStack including the core projects for block storage (Cinder) and object storage (Swift), as well as the emerging shared file service. It will cover some common configurations and use cases for these technologies, and how they interact with the other parts of OpenStack. The talk will also cover new developments in Cinder that enable a variety of storage devices and storage fabrics to be used.
