Cinder Driver Support Matrix

Cinder Driver Support Matrix

The following support matrix reflects the drivers that are currently available or are available in Cinder’s driver tree at the time of release.

Note

This matrix replaces the old wiki based version of the Cinder Support Matrix as there was no way to ensure the wiki version was properly maintained. The old matrix will be left for reference but this matrix should be treated as the correct state of Cinder.

Required Driver Functions

There are a number of functions that are required to be accepted as a Cinder driver. Rather than list all the required functionality in the matrix we include the list of required functions here for reference.

  • Create Volume
  • Delete Volume
  • Attach Volume
  • Detach Volume
  • Extend Volume
  • Create Snapshot
  • Delete Snapshot
  • Create Volume from Snapshot
  • Create Volume from Volume (clone)
  • Create Image from Volume
  • Volume Migration (host assisted)

Note

Since the above functions are required their support is assumed and the matrix only includes support for optional functionality.

Details

  • Supported Vendor Driver

    Status: optional.

    Notes: A vendor driver is considered supported if the vendor is running a third party CI that regularly runs and reports accurate results. If a vendor doesn’t meet this requirement the driver is marked unsupported and is removed if the problem isn’t resolved before the end of the subsequent release.

  • Thin Provisioning

    Status: optional.

    Notes: If a volume driver supports thin provisioning it means that it will allow the scheduler to provision more storage space than physically exists on the backend. This may also be called ‘oversubscription’.

  • Multi-Attach Support

    Status: optional.

    Notes: Vendor drivers that report multi-attach support are able to make one volume available to multiple instances as once. It is important to note that a clustered file system that supports multi-attach functionality is required to use multi- attach functionality otherwise data corruption may occur.
