Cinder has seen explosive growth offering over 70 backend storage providers. Now we’re seeing the arms race begin with Vendors and start-ups pitching the same sort of trend in Containers. It’s actually pretty simple to use Cinder to provide your Block Storage orchestration for Docker. Many point out that Containers and OpenStack can be complementary, we’ll show you one such case. We can use OpenStack components like Cinder for things outside of OpenStack.

This talk will introduce some of the current functionality in the Docker Volumes API, as well as take a quick look at a number of the plugin options that are out there. There’s no single answer, but there might be an easier path to Persistent Block storage in containers than you thought.

We’ll show you how you can use your existing Cinder environment an introduce a Native Docker Cinder plugin to containers and container orchestration layers. Some folks are already using this great combination today. Not to mention a demo with Docker Swarm and Mesos/Marathon.

Key Takeaways: How to use cinder as a stand-alone storage provider, particularly for use with their Container environments whether they be on OpenStack Instances or bare-metal.
