Implement a volume driver for Scality SOFS

Registered by Jean-Marc Saffroy on 2013-01-11

The goal of this blueprint is to add a new driver that manages volumes on the Scality SOFS filesystem. This gives OpenStack users the option of storing their data on a high capacity, replicated, highly available Scality Ring object storage cluster.

Scality SOFS: http://www.scality.com/connectors/

SOFS is a network filesystem mounted with FUSE, with most options given in a configuration file. Given a mount point and a SOFS configuration file as driver options (in cinder.conf), the Scality volume driver in Cinder mounts SOFS, and then creates or deletes volumes as regular (sparse) files on SOFS. Similarly, the Scality volume driver in Nova mounts SOFS and lets the hypervisor access the volumes.
