Concurrent multiple volume drivers

Dear all,

How can I configured nova volume to support multiple volume drivers running at the same time on nova volume site?

Shall I modify nova volume manager architecture to support the function?

Based on my study, the libvirt_volume_drivers on nova compute site seems to support different nova volume connection by implementing "initialize_connection()".

This function is used to decide "volume_driver_type" on demand in the "volume-attach" event.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Respectfully,

As far as nova-volume is concerned, you can't do this today. Bear in mind that nova-volume is going to be replaced by https://launchpad.net/cinder , so to get your requirement addressed, please redirect your question there.

Hope this help! Armando

I think you just use volume-groups to separate them, but as Armando mentioned, cinder is the way forward.
