Cloud VPS Project Tested: ---
Number of systems: 2
Networking Requirements: internal
Processor Requirements: 2
Disks: 5G for base operating system 20G in a separate drive for LVM to store cinder backups
We're developing a new backup solution in Cloud VPS for cinder volumes, that will unblock migration of NFS servers into the cloud realm (see parent task).
We have several other cloudbackup servers, including 2 in codfw:
- cloudbackup2001.codfw.wmnet (200TB storage)
- cloudbackup2002.codfw.wmnet (200TB storage)
These 2 new VMs (cloudbackupXXXX-dev.eqiad.wmnet) are meant to serve as the mirror of the cloudbackup servers on codfw.
In other words:
- the openstack deployment eqiad1 will use cloudbackup servers in codfw to store backup data <-- not related to this ticket
- the openstack deployment codfw1dev will use cloudbackup-dev servers in eqiad to store fake backup data (we only need like 20G storage to tests the system) <-- this ticket
