Hi Community, I need some help in finding the latest resources wrt IBM Storage Drivers for Openstack. The IBM Storage Driver for OpenStack is a software component that integrates with the OpenStack cloud environment and enables utilization of storage resources provided by the IBM and DS8000 Storage Systems.

PFB the questions:

  • What is the latest release of IBM Storage Drivers for Openstack ? I could find IBM_Storage_Driver_for_OpenStack_v1.8.0 which is dated May 2016. Has there been any release since then ?

  • Where can I find the latest
    repository on github ?

  • How can I track the changes made in
    the source code for IBM Storage
    Drivers for Openstack for different
    Openstack releases ?

Thanks, Rohit

IBM storage drivers are shipped with Cinder. Find them here: https://opendev.org/openstack/cinder/.... There might be a mirror on Github, but OpenStack has always had its own repository and uses Opendev by now.

Perhaps a list of the changes is somewhere in the source code, but you could use the commits to figure this out.

The IBM Storage Driver for OpenStack is a software component of the OpenStack cloud environment that enables utilization of storage resources provided by supported IBM storage systems.

The driver was validated on storage systems, as detailed in the Supported storage systems section below.

After the driver is configured on the OpenStack Cinder nodes, storage volumes can be allocated by the Cinder nodes to the Nova nodes. Virtual machines on the Nova nodes can then utilize these storage resources.

Supported storage systems¶ The IBM Storage Driver for OpenStack supports the IBM storage systems, as detailed in the following table.

Storage system Microcode version Connectivity 1 IBM DS8870 7.5 SP4 or later, 7.5 with RESTful API patch Fibre Channel (FC)

2 IBM DS8880 8.1 or later Fibre Channel (FC)

3 IBM XIV Storage System 11.1.x, 11.2.x, 11.3.x, 11.4.x, 11.5.x, 11.6.x Fibre Channel (FC) iSCSI
