Openstack is an open source software that enables developers to build IaaS(Infrastructure as a Service) cloud platforms. Openstack can virtualize servers, networks and storages, and provide them to users. This paper proposes the structure of Openstack cloud storage system applying Infiniband to solve bottlenecking that may occur between server and storage nodes when the server performs an I/O operation. Furthermore, we implement all flash array based high-performance Cinder storage volumes which can be used at Nova virtual machines by applying distributed RAID-60 structures to three 8-bay SSD storages and show that Infiniband storage networks applied to Openstack is suitable for virtualizing high-performance storage.
