Re: Openstack API - Volumes?


Describing full Volume API as an extension may work in the short term.  Long term though we're moving towards having a suite of APIs.  From this perspective adding an extension to OpenStack Compute API seems a little strange to me.  But it could work short term, my concern is that we should really be thinking of Volumes as a core API, not additional features to Compute. Certainly we may need to extend compute to do things like mount/unmount a volume.
