Latest Release: v0.6.0 Capri
The OpenSDS Project is a collaborative project under Linux Foundation supported by storage users and vendors, including Dell EMC, Intel, Huawei, Fujitsu, Western Digital, Vodafone, NTT and Oregon State University. The project will also seek to collaborate with other upstream open source communities such as Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Docker, OpenStack, and Open Container Initiative.
It is a software defined storage controller that provides unified block, file, object storage services and focuses on:
- Simple: well-defined API that follows the OpenAPI specification.
- Lightweight: no external dependencies, deployed once in binary file or container.
- Extensible: pluggable framework available for different storage systems, identity services, capability filters, etc.
The OpenSDS community welcomes anyone who is interested in software defined storage and shaping the future of cloud-era storage. If you are a company, you should consider joining the OpenSDS Project. If you are a developer and would like to be part of the code development that is happening now, please refer to the Contributing sections below.
