The three pillars of the data center are “compute”, “network”, and “storage”. Stacki obviously has a strong heritage as a system for automating the deployment of compute nodes, but the configuration of networking and storage have been limited to the internals of the servers. With the Stacki Pallet for Netapp, we’ve now taken what we’ve learned from the development of Stacki and extended it to include NetApp external Storage Arrays. This means all the same tricks you’ve learned for working with compute nodes in Stacki will work with storage arrays. During the talk, Bill will walk through the process of creating a configuration for a storage array — managing networking and disks — to create LUN’s accessible by Stacki backend nodes over iSCSI.
