Cloud computing frameworks like Kubernetes are designed to address containerized application management using "service" level abstraction for delivering smart data center manageability. Storage management intelligence and interfaces need to evolve to support "service" oriented abstraction. Having every computing framework reinvent the storage integration makes the storage management more challenging from end user perspective. Moreover it adds significant burden on storage vendors to write drivers and certify for every orchestration stack which is least desirable. Industry wide collaboration is needed to address storage management in an open way that supports traditional and cloud computing frameworks. In this panel, we will cover the motivation behind Linux Foundation OpenSDS project, objectives, technical focus and governance.
