Cinder is a storage service for the Openstack project.
It provides the tools for creating volume backups.
This charm enables backups (in swift) as an add-on
This charm provides the Cinder backup feature for Cinder OpenStack volumes.
It is intended to be used alongside the other OpenStack components,
starting with the Icehouse release.
This charm was developed as Cinder subordinate to support volumes backup.
It's been tested in Icehouse on Ubuntu Trusty.
The following assumes Cinder charm is already deployed.
This is ideal for small-scale deployments or testing:
cat >cinder-backup.cfg <<END
juju deploy --config=cinder-backup.cfg cinder-backup
juju add-relation cinder cinder-backup
The default value for most config options should work for most deployments.
Users should be aware of the following default option:
backup-swift-container: Allows Cinder to upload backups on a specific swift
container that has to be previously created.
ie: swift post volumebackups
