OpenStack supports many different compute, storage and networking environments for various deployment models. Over the past 15 years, major investments went into building Fibre Channel storage infrastructures. Are you asking yourself “How can I extend OpenStack to utilize my existing FC SAN environment or does OpenStack block storage support FC storage?”
Attend this session to learn about an initiative supported by a group of tier-one, FC-SAN, vendors including Brocade, HP, EMC, and IBM, to make FC technology relevant in an OpenStack environment. Two new Fiber Channel blueprints and their implementations for the Grizzly release and beyond as well as considerations around managing FC SAN volumes and zones from an OpenStack orchestration perspective will be covered. If you are considering moving your dev/test or storage/backup or business applications to the cloud and extending your future FC private cloud environment to leverage OpenStack then plan on attending this discussion.
