Kindly let me know the prerequisite for configuring the cinder node in separate server.

another options you to expand the storage nodes:

  1. use multi-backend lvm volumes, see more detail in the guide: (

  2. select one the stable storage back-end, -> it's easier to extend more storage node dynamically. In my deployment, i'm using ceph likes as the storage back-end. ^.^

Hope they're useful to you ;)

for the simple deployement, i suggest you install one cinder-api, and cinder-scheduler on controller node and install cinder-volume on the cluster nodes..

I included HA for these cinder services, so i installed all.
