vm file in swift node

asked 2015-06-05 05:17:35 -0500

Hello All,

I would like to know if it is possible to store VMs installation file directly on an object storage (with swift) instead on Compute Nova. VMs images took a large amount of storage resources in Nova (300 GB physical available), and I want to transfer them on the storage server (9TB physical available).

On the OPENSTACK OPERATIONS GUIDE, chapter 6 Storage Decisions, they said :

In addition, OpenStack can store your virtual machine (VM) images inside of an object storage system, as an alternative to storing the images on a file system. http://docs.openstack.org/openstack-ops/content/storage_decision.html (http://docs.openstack.org/openstack-o...)

This seems to be a solution to my issue but I do not know to do it. If there is anyone could enlighten me on that point, that will be very appeciable.

Many thanks in advance for your help,

Kind regard,

Adrien THIBAULT
