DRBD9 is a Linux block device driver, that allows to mirror Linux block devices to multiple peer hosts. It can operate in synchronous or asynchronous mode.
Drbdmanage is a management solution, that takes over management of logic volumes (LVM) and management of configuration files for DRBD. It offers commands to create replicated volumes, take snapshots, resize, remove, etc... It allows to create volumes in consistency groups.
These capabilities are available on the command line, and as a D-BUS service. They are useful as they are, since it automates the operation of DRBD replicated storage.
Originally DRBD was mainly used to build highly available server clusters. Drbdmanage not only eases the use of DRBD in this area it opens a new class of use cases for DRBD in the field of highly automated cloud deployments. A cinder (OpenStack) driver for the mentioned stack is in development.
