Unlocked Partners » NetApp

NetApp and Mirantis partner to support the widest possible range of NetApp storage options, protocols, and features with Mirantis OpenStack; making it easier for service providers and enterprises to create robust, production-grade OpenStack clouds with feature-rich, high performance NetApp storage systems. NetApp has recently validated Fuel Plugins for integrating Mirantis OpenStack with NetApp Clustered Data ONTAP/7-Mode and E-Series storage systems, as well as SolidFire all-Flash storage clusters; and Mirantis and NetApp have collaborated on reference architectures detailing architecture, configuration and deployment for production on Mirantis OpenStack.

Community Fuel Plugins

NetApp+SolidFire Fuel Plugin

The NetApp Fuel Plugin enables use of NetApp’s drivers as a Cinder back-end with Clustered Data ONTAP-based NetApp FAS storage systems (CDOT), performance-optimized SANtricity-based NetApp E Series storage systems, and SolidFire clusters using iSCSI protocol.

The NetApp Fuel Plugin enables use of NetApp’s drivers as a Cinder back-end with Clustered Data ONTAP-based NetApp FAS storage systems (CDOT), performance-optimized SANtricity-based NetApp E Series storage systems, and SolidFire clusters using iSCSI protocol, with MOS 9.0 and 9.1.

NetApp Fuel Plugin

This Fuel Plugin enables use of NetApp’s NFS driver as a Cinder back-end, enabling use of Mirantis OpenStack with feature-rich, Clustered Data ONTAP-based NetApp FAS storage systems (CDOT), 7-Mode systems, and performance-optimized SANtricity-based NetApp E Series storage systems.

This plugin provides support of Clustered Data ONTAP, Data ONTAP 7-Mode and E-series storage clusters for Cinder. The plugin uses NetApp unified driver, a block storage driver that supports multiple storage families and protocols. A storage family corresponds to storage systems built on different NetApp technologies such as Clustered Data ONTAP, Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode, and E-Series. The storage protocol refers to the protocol used to initiate data storage and access operations on those storage systems like iSCSI and NFS. The NetApp unified driver can be configured to provision and manage OpenStack volumes on the given storage family using the specified storage protocol. The OpenStack volumes can then be used for accessing and storing data with the storage protocol on the storage family system. The NetApp unified driver is an extensible interface that can support new storage families and protocols.

SolidFire Fuel Plugin

This Fuel Plugin enables rapid configuration and integration of a new Mirantis OpenStack deployment with a SolidFire Cluster as a Cinder back end. The SolidFire Cluster is a high performance all SSD iSCSI storage device that provides massive scale out capability and extreme fault tolerance. A key feature of the SolidFire cluster is the ability to set and modify during operation specific QoS levels on a volume for volume basis. The SolidFire cluster offers this along with de-duplication, compression, and an architecture that takes full advantage of SSDs.
