Manila is the OpenStack file share service that was recently labeled as an officially incubated OpenStack program. Manila provides the management of file shares (for example, NFS and CIFS) as a core service to OpenStack. Manila currently works with a variety of vendors, including NetApp, Red Hat Storage (GlusterFS), EMC, IBM GPFS, and on a base Linux NFS server. In this session, we will provide an introduction to the Manila file share service, a description of the logical architecture of Manila and its API structure, examples of use cases, and a brief demo.
