Opennebula and 3PAR storage


Is was wondering if anyone is using opennebula in combination with HP 3PAR storage nodes.
Would it be doable to create a custom driver.


Hi Vincent, did you step forward on your experiment with 3PAR?
I think that I have a similar problem to solve: I would connect the physical 3PAR device to different VMs using OCFS2.

No, I was just curious if someone already build something. Currently it’s out of scope.


I’ve made a configuration adding this option at the vm template (raw data):

   <disk type='block' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none'/>
      <source dev='/dev/mapper/to/phic/device' />
      <target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/>

In this way the virtual machine can see the 3par device. After that, you can use ocfs2 filesystem for sharing the device in correct way.

Hi all, I know, it is four years ago you create this thread, but I like to tell you that we developed and open-sourced 3PAR storage driver for OpenNebula. [Contribution] HPE 3PAR Storage driver
