Open vStorage 1.0.2 Beta

KVM
Open vStorage supports KVM as Hypervisor.

Swift Support
Open vStorage supports Swift (SAIO – Swift All In One, Swiftstack, …) as Storage Backend.

Configuration of a vPool through the GUI
You can now add a new vPool through the GUI to a VSA. In case the vPool is a not a local filesystem, you can also stretch it across multiple VSAs.

Protection against moving a vDisk to a VSA where it can’t be served
Each VSA can only serve only a limited amount of vDisks. In case a vDisk is moved between VSAs, f.e. due to a vMotion, the process will first check if there are enough resources available to serve the vDisk. In case there are not enough free resources on the destination VSA, the handover will be aborted.
