Hi,

I'm planning to setup a new cluster using Ocata. Before setup I always check the source code of the components I use, to avoid nasty surprises.

In the Cinder repository, I noticed that the BlockDeviceDriver driver is being deprecated, and will eventually be removed with the Queens release.

https://github.com/openstack/cinder/blob/stable/ocata/cinder/volume/drivers/block_device.py (https://github.com/openstack/cinder/b...)

In my use case, the instances using Cinder perform intense I/O, thus iSCSI or LVM is not a viable option - benchmarked them several times, since Juno, unsatisfactory results.

So my question is, what do you suggest to use once BlockDeviceDriver is removed?
