Is data permanent inside an OpenStack instance?

0 votes

Hi Guys,

I launched an instance in OpenStack, but I am not able to understand that my data is permanent or temporary? In AWS we have two types of store Elastic Block Store (EBS) or Instance Store. Is OpenStack have the same concept?

Thank You

Hi@akhtar,

Storage is found in many parts of the OpenStack cloud environment. It is important to understand the distinction between ephemeral storage and persistent storage:

  • Ephemeral storage - If you only deploy OpenStack Compute service (nova), by default your users do not have access to any form of persistent storage. The disks associated with VMs are ephemeral, meaning that from the user’s point of view they disappear when a virtual machine is terminated.

  • Persistent storage - Persistent storage means that the storage resource outlives any other resource and is always available, regardless of the state of a running instance.

OpenStack clouds explicitly support three types of persistent storage: Object StorageBlock Storage, and File-based storage.

Hope this will help.

Thank You
