Storage cluster management with LINSTOR

Digital Warehouse


LINSTOR is a free package that gives administrators a toolkit for automated cluster management. It takes the complexity out of DRBD management and offers a wide range of functions, including provisioning and snapshots. Drivers are already on board for integration into existing cloud frameworks such as Kubernetes, OpenNebula, and OpenStack. A lively community [3] and commercial support from the vendor are both available to help you solve any issues.
