What is Manila?
Manila is an OpenStack affiliated project to provide virtual file shares (a/k/a "file as a service" or virtual NAS). Manila is a spin-off of the Cinder project. Whereas Cinder exposes virtual block storage, Manila exposes mountable file shares. These file shares can be presented the a Nova guest via NFS, SMB, VirtFS, Glusterfs Native protocol or vendor-specific network attached storage protocols. Manila file shares can be concurrently mounted by multiple Nova guests.
The Manila project was initiated in August 2013 and is currently in start-up. know what they're doing with Neutron).
