Cinder-volume on controller node with external storage ??

I am a total novice, so please bear with me!!


I have a controller node and compute node with Icehouse.

Compute node is connected to SAN which in turn is connected to EMC VNX array.

(Compute-------Fiber channel switches(brocade)------EMC VNX Array)

Controller has cinder-api and cinder-scheduler on it.

Where should I install cinder-volume on the compute or controller node ??

Also, please let me know if my deployment is incorrect and i need a separate cinder node with cinder-volume installed on it.


  • Objective:

    To Use the EMC Array over the Fiber channel switches and carve out volumes from the array and assign it to the instances created on the compute using Fibre Channel Zone Manager from Brocade.

Thanks!!
