Running separate cinder on the compute nodes

Is it possible to run cinder and nova-compute on the same compute node and pair them together so that compute1 always uses cinder1, compute2 always uses cinder2 etc? So compute1 actually runs both cinder and nova-compute and compute1 is only allowed to use cinder1, some kind of binding.

Best regards

I think you can use availability zones to achieve that. Refer to cinder.conf and nova.conf and configure two availability zones for both compute nodes and cinder. It will require you some research and testing.

But then wouldn't that require one to explicitly select that availability zone when booting a new instance? I think so.

yes, So you will need to do further scripting and edit the create and launch commands or scripts to check the zone and put it in the correct zone.

Yeah that's what I though, thanks for you input.
