LINBIT® collaborates with cloud platform leader OpenNebula. The new architecture between LINSTOR® and the cloud platform demonstrates how a container-native SDS solution can be deployed easily, delivering simultaneously unprecedented speed and reliability. LINSTOR is the only SDS solution that enhances, rather than duplicate the storage management functionality that is already available in the Linux operating system. This SDS approach translates to a reliable feature-rich solution for large and small companies. Volume and configuration management are provided by LINSTOR, a software tool that serves as management console for LINBIT products, while a fast and reliable data replication is delivered by DRBD®, a part of the mainline Linux kernel for nearly a decade.
“OpenNebula over LINSTOR® enables a fully hyper-converged cloud with state-of-the-art
orchestration and storage features, using OSS components exclusively. “The integration
between OpenNebula over LINSTOR couldn’t be more natural – they are a perfect fit.”
Constantino Vázquez, Engineering Manager at Opennebula Systems.
LINSTOR® is composed of at least one controller and multiple satellites that connect over a secured connection to OpenNebula. This interaction is done via API or CLI.
