This is part 3 (sort of) in a series that I’ve been writing about the OpenStack Cinder block storage service. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to at least read my part 1 post on the basics of Cinder; you may also want to read part 2 if you are interested in how VMware is uniquely implementing Cinder into their vSphere construct. Now here’s the catch… to read the actual part 3 post on Cinder solutions design, please go here to the official Rackspace blog. Note that (and I apologize if this is confusing) the title on the Rackspace blog states that post is actually part 2; the reason for the discrepancy in numbering is that I had re-posted part 1, with edits, on the corporate blog but had decided not to re-post my part 2 post on vSphere integration with Cinder.
Now a quick word here on why I decided to place the full “Solutions Design” post on the Rackspace blog instead of my personal blog:
Should be a fun 2014. Will be gradually transitioning into an OpenStack tech mktg role at Rackspace. More time 2 put out content.

As part of my gradual transition to more of a Technical Marketing role at Rackspace, I will be writing content for both the corporate blog and my personal blog. In general, the Rackspace blog will have content that is Rackspace Private Cloud and Hybrid Cloud specific while my personal blog will have more general OpenStack content as well as my musings on other aspects of technology.
I hope readers will continue to come to this blog as I explore topics such as Cloud Computing, DevOps, the OpenStack Project, OpenStack related technologies, virtualization, community, etc.. If you are interested in reading about what Rackspace is doing in the Cloud Computing space, particularly around OpenStack and Hybrid Cloud, I invite you to made frequent visits to the Rackspace blog; and while you are there, look for and bookmark my growing library of posts.
