Providing cloud storage with openATTIC and openQRM

Storage and virtualization are important issues in the IT world. And, let´s face it, there are many cases that for an admin are much easier to handle.

This video demonstrates how cloud storage can be provided with the open source projects openQRM and openATTIC.

Imagine the following scenario: As administrator you get a request from a colleague or a customer to attach 2 terabytes of storage to a virtual machine. What you normally would do is getting storage from your host and map it to your VM. This means you will have to create the storage, initialize it with the Hypervisor host (so that the host will recognize it) and mount it to VM. There are two systems that make this process a lot easier: openQRM and openATTIC.

In my video I will show you how you can provide cloud storage with openQRM and openATTIC, two pretty cool open source projects. openQRM is an open datacenter management and cloud computing platform. openATTIC provides software-defined storage and has just been released in version 1.1. The new version will be presented at Chemnitzer Linuxtage on March 15-16.

Nachtrag: Das openATTIC-Projekt ist zusammen mit dem Storage-Bereich der it-novum zum November 2016 an SUSE übergegangen. SUSE wird openATTIC zum Management-Frontend für die Verwaltung von Ceph-Clustern weiterentwickeln.
