Welcome to Manila’s developer documentation!

Welcome to Manila’s developer documentation!

Manila is an OpenStack project to provide “Shared Filesystems as a service”.

  • Component based architecture: Quickly add new behaviors
  • Highly available: Scale to very serious workloads
  • Fault-Tolerant: Isolated processes avoid cascading failures
  • Recoverable: Failures should be easy to diagnose, debug, and rectify
  • Open Standards: Be a reference implementation for a community-driven api
  • API Compatibility: Manila strives to provide API-compatible with popular systems like Amazon EC2

This documentation is generated by the Sphinx toolkit and lives in the source tree. Additional draft and project documentation on Manila and other components of OpenStack can be found on the OpenStack wiki. Cloud administrators, refer to docs.openstack.org.
