Manila is the file share service project for OpenStack. Manila provides the management of file shares for example, NFS and CIFS, as a core service to OpenStack. Manila works with a variety of proprietary backend storage arrays and appliances, with open source distributed filesystems, as well as with a base Linux NFS or Samba server.
Prereqs: Make sure you have the nfs client installed on your instance: apt install nfs-common for Ubuntu and yum install nfs-utils for CentOS
Presently, Manila is in BETA mode on Jetstream and is only functional on the IU cloud.
