What are the pro/cons of adding NAS services/APIs to Cinders?

Hi Guys,

Cinder is one of the storage services in OpenStack. It is same as EBS in AWS. But can we add NAS(Network Attached Storage) with Cinder?

Thank You

Hi@MD,

Mirantis is in the business of deploying a lot of OpenStack environments. And we see a great deal of demand for this type of feature. So we are completely for expending Cinder to support both block- and NAS-based storage. Having a single end point managing them will provide ability for storage platforms such as NetApp and Nexenta to offer both storage types from a single array, providing customers a significant cost savings.

Hope it will clear your doubt.

Thank You
