How oVirt leverages storage vendors provided offloading API to do fast storage side actions.

oVirt is a mature open source datacenter virtualization solution used by many organizations, such as in a Brussels airport and many more.

oVirt supports a broad range of storage backends, including iSCSI, FC, NFS and Gluster. There are certain operations in oVirt that require exclusive access to the disks, and when working with large volumes this prevents any other operations on that volume for a long time, greatly impacting performance.

So how can we reduce the locking time in oVirt for operations such as snapshotting and cloning?

In this talk, we will present how oVirt leverages storage vendors provided offloading API to do fast storage side actions.

Audiences: Virtualization users, developers, and admins interested in new oVirt features to boost storage operation performance.
