I am planning Openstack to be used as VIM in telco NFV deployment. Can we use separate storage pools instead of Server attached storages with OpenStack? How can we attach these storage pools with OpenStack?

I can't answer specific to EMC storage pools, but we have an OpenStack Juno setup with Cinder and Swift connected to an IBM SAN. It uses iscsi to connect to the SAN. It's a matter of configurating cinder to use the SAN driver and providing the storage pool details (IP, pool name, etc).

For Glance, my understanding is that it cannot use an external storage pool but must use the local server storage.
