Led by: Anjaneya "Reddy" Chagam
Currently admin enters storage information manually in cinder.conf. This is not a sustainable model in large enterprises that will have many different storage systems. Moreover it requires admin to have deep intelligence to identify storage system features and figure out best way to group them. Also solution providers would like to offer differentiated capabilities that admins can take advantage of during pool composition and volume provisioning.

* Propose adding discovery module with driver based framework with following changes:
** Database persistence for storage systems.
** REST APIs for storage systems, capabilities (create, update, delete, list operations).
** In order to accommodate legacy storage systems, ability to manually configure storage specs or additional behavior that admin deems useful.
** Changes to existing Cinder code to use database storage information instead of cinder.conf (backend portion only) e.g., volume startup, cinder-volume, scheduler changes.
