High Integration Compatibility

Provision volume storage to both bare metal and virtual machines through block storage from OpenStack.

  • Virtual Machine

    Cinder is capable of provisioning volume storage for virtual machines using Nova.

  • Bare Metal

    Cinder is capable of provisioning volume storage for bare metal through Ironic.

Ceph Compatible

Cinder makes it possible for users to work with Ceph storage backends without complications.

  • Avoids Backend Limitations

    OpenStack’s Cinder enables users to create volumes in Ceph, which provides snapshot management functionality for backing up data stored on block storage volumes that can be restored or used to create new block storage volumes.

  • Simplifies Code Management

    As opposed to manually maintaining a set of codes for each service, users only need to maintain one. They can use Cinder for the management of all their provisioning and deleting needs.

Single API Management

Simplify the management of your storage devices with OpenStack’s block storage.

  • One Code For All Backends

    As opposed to maintaining a different code for each backend, only a single code is needed as Cinder acts as the holder of all of the codes for creating volumes on different backends.

  • Integration Made Simple

    With each of the backends being within Cinder, users no longer need to create integrations between other services and their backend, they can simply use Cinder to communicate.

Seamless Encryption

Get the best of both OpenStack’s block storage and key management technologies.

  • Integrate With Key Management

    With Cinder and Key Management, when a server is started, the associated key needs to be pulled down in order to decrypt its content.

  • Securing Data At Rest

    By encrypting your data at rest, it becomes inaccessible to those without the appropriate key, ensuring that your content remains secure, even should someone take the server.
