The Solaris iSCSI driver for OpenStack Block Storage implements blocks as ZFS entities. ZFS is a file system that also has the functionality of a volume manager. This is unlike on a Linux system, where there is a separation of volume manager (LVM) and file system (such as, ext3, ext4, xfs, and btrfs). ZFS has a number of advantages over ext4, including improved data-integrity checking.

The ZFS backend for OpenStack Block Storage supports only Solaris-based systems, such as Illumos. While there is a Linux port of ZFS, it is not included in any of the standard Linux distributions, and it has not been tested with OpenStack Block Storage. As with LVM, ZFS does not provide replication across hosts on its own; you need to add a replication solution on top of ZFS if your cloud needs to be able to handle storage-node failures ...(more)

Getting Started with Oracle VM, Oracle Linux and OpenStack

    A complete installation of all the OpenStack services on an Oracle Linux node. This
    deployment model is commonly used to get started with OpenStack,or for development purposes.
    In this model,the user has fewer options to configure,and the deployment does not require more
    than one node.This deployment model is not supported for production use.

    Control node and one or more compute nodes–This is a common deployment across multiple
    servers. In this case,all the control services are installed on Oracle Linux, while separate compute
    nodes are set up to run Oracle VM Server or Oracle Linux for the sole purpose of running virtual
    machines.As mentioned,OpenStack is very flexible,and there is no technical limitation that stops the user from
    experimenting with more sophisticated deployment models. We recommend one of the supported
    configurations to reduce complexity.

Please be advised that Oracle VM Server is actually Xen Server been setup on RHEL 6.X clone . Oracle VMs are paravitual DomUs running Oracle database
