Introduction to Marconi Drivers

Marconi has a modular architecture, and utilizes dynamically-loaded transport (frontend) and storage (backend) drivers via stevedore. All drivers have a defined base API that different implementations must inherit from and fully support.

<talk about requirments - functional ones are vetted by tests, also talk about non-functional reqs such as performance, duability, availability, operations, etc.>

Compatible 3rd-Party Drivers


Storage drivers, also known as backends, are responsible for storing data within Marconi. These drivers are not accessible from outside but through Marconi's transport layer.

A storage driver is composed by 1 actual driver and 3 controllers.



Drivers Tests

Both layers - frontend and backend - are tested and certified by a well structured and designed suite which verifies that the implementation details, resources life-cycles and live behavior.
