As required by a highly redundant and scalable object storage system, replication is a key requirement. The reason we went to great lengths to create multiple directories—named in a particular way so as to mimic actual devices—is that we want to set up replication between these "devices" using rsync.
Rsync is responsible for performing the replication of the objects stored in our OpenStack Storage environment.
To begin with, log in to our
Configuring replication in OpenStack Storage means configuring the Rsync service. The following steps set up synchronization modules configured to represent the different ports that we will eventually configure our OpenStack Storage service ...
