Implementing storage with OpenStack

In this lab, we’ll investigate the configuration of Red Hat Storage Server, based on GlusterFS technology, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform. You’ll learn how to integrate Red Hat Storage Server with the Glance, Cinder, and Nova services to provide the image, volume, and ephemeral storage infrastructure common to every OpenStack implementation. As a bonus exercise, we’ll implement the object store built into Red Hat Storage Server via the Gluster-4-Swift components to provide Swift API cloud storage to our OpenStack environment.
