OpenStack Manila manages shared file-systems across the cloud. Being able to create and access them with ease from the container world is showing to be quite useful - that’s what csi-manila is for. One of the features that’s also in high demand when dealing with shared file-systems is taking snapshots as well as creating new shares from those snapshots from within Container Orchestrators like Kubernetes. csi-manila itself is quite a new piece of software and is missing certain features, like snapshots for an instance. This GSoC project will try to close this feature gap.
