Element OS provides a driver for the OpenStack Block Storage (Cinder) service. Features include:
- Volume create/delete
- Volume attach/detach
- Extend volume
- Snapshot create/delete
- List snapshots
- Create volume from snapshot
NetApp HCI also provides a plug-in for VMware vRealize Orchestration (vRO). The plug-in models the storage API methods as vRO workflows so scheduling and automating NetApp HCI storage administration tasks becomes easy.
There are also Ansible playbooks for Element OS and VMware vSphere.
