Using the SolidFire Puppet Module

The SolidFire provider allows you to provision volumes on a SolidFire cluster from either a Puppet client or a Puppet device proxy host. The provider also provides facts and resource lists from SolidFire clusters. The provider has been developed against CentOS 7.1 using Puppet-3.8.4. At this stage testing is completely manual.

Description

Using the solidfire_account, solidfire_volume and solidfire_vag types, one can quickly provision remote storage and attach it via iSCSI (and FC) from a SolidFire cluster to a client.

The provider utilizes the robust API (json-rpc) available on the SolidFire storage clusters to remotely provision the necessary resources.
