The cinder.volume.drivers.quobyte Module

The cinder.volume.drivers.quobyte Module

class QuobyteDriver(execute=<function execute>, *args, **kwargs)

Bases: cinder.volume.drivers.remotefs.RemoteFSSnapDriverDistributed

Cinder driver for Quobyte USP.

Volumes are stored as files on the mounted Quobyte volume. The hypervisor will expose them as block devices.

Unlike other similar drivers, this driver uses exactly one Quobyte volume because Quobyte USP is a distributed storage system. To add or remove capacity, administrators can add or remove storage servers to/from the volume.

For different types of volumes e.g., SSD vs. rotating disks, use multiple backends in Cinder.

Note: To be compliant with the inherited RemoteFSSnapDriver, Quobyte
volumes are also referred to as shares.
