    Being able to use OnApp Integrated storage in this manner would be *extremely* beneficial and help sell it better.

    Indeed, this is still something we would like to have but we have chosen to purchase an additional SAN that we will use to export iSCSI targets manually for cluster environments.

    what sort of workloads would you expect to be running in this situation?

    We would use this in combination with OCFS2 or GFS2 to share data in cluster environments for large website. Files that would be shared are the core files of a website (e.g. large Magento online shops) where multiple front end nodes would need access to the same files (also images).

    I would definitely like to see this feature.

    Agreed. That would be a welcomed feature. Cureently using SAN with NFS/iSCSI module for this. Not the best solution because it puts an extra strain on NIC-s.

    Hi

    We hear you with this. Next thing we will do is add the ability to move a disk from one VM to the other but we will keep this here and try to develop it at some point in the future.

    I would like something like this as well, which I requested here:

    https://help.onapp.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/211112468-Amazon-S3-compatiable-storage-bucket-API?page=1#community_comment_115000272408

    Including a block level storage driver that could mount a path right to the storage API and use a virtual disk in onapp IS for storage just like a VM does but without the need for a VM.
