The long-term business value of introducing cloud infrastructure to the enterprise remains clear and uncontested. Standardizing and automating to a cloud infrastructure leads to a reduction in TCO and yields a high-performing, cost-effective and a stable platform that accelerates innovation. Yet, we continue to hear of the same challenges as businesses tackle a migration to the cloud, from the struggle to rapidly provision systems, to scaling cloud computing environments that didn’t quite serve the requirements of business users.

By default, the packstack installer uses either a volume group named cinder-volumes or a loopback device as back end for the Cinder block storage service. For professional purposes, this is not enough; the usual requirement is to have a redundant storage back end. If you have an existing Red Hat Storage service, you might want to use one of the GlusterFS volumes as back end for the block devices your virtual machines use in the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform cloud.
Before starting the configuration, you must remove all existing Cinder volumes, or you will run into problems. To figure out if there are any existing volumes with your current Cinder setup issue:

cinder delete volumename
Now that you have a cleaned-up Cinder setup, you can configure the back end to exclusively use the Red Hat Storage GlusterFS volume(s).
Start off by installing the GlusterFS-fuse package on the Cinder host, available in the Red Hat Storage Native Client repository from Red Hat Network.
yum -y install GlusterFS-fuse
