Violin Memory 7000 Series All-Flash Array Common Driver for OpenStack Cinder

Provides common (ie., non-protocol specific) management functions for V7000 series flash arrays.

Backend array communication is handled via VMEM’s python library called ‘vmemclient’.

NOTE: this driver file requires the use of synchronization points for certain types of backend operations, and as a result may not work properly in an active-active HA configuration. See OpenStack Cinder driver documentation for more information.
