The new and improved OpenStack Cinder driver for IBM SVC, Storwize Family, and FlashSystem V9000 storage systems has been released! This release complies with the OpenStack Mitaka specifications, enabling IBM storage customers to fully utilize the cutting-edge OpenStack data storage enhancements.
The new features include:
- Support for multi-pool configuration within a single backend, solving the SSH limitation for Storwize Family products.
- Support for multiple management IP addresses, enabling a switch-over to the secondary IP, if the primary management IP fails.
Moreover, the new SVC and Storwize Family microcode version (7.7) will be supported at its release on June 1, 2016 without any driver code change.
Upgrade and enjoy!
