Chapter 2. Process Description

Configuring the Block Storage service to use Google Cloud as a backup service involves the following steps:

  1. Creating and downloading the service account credentials of your Google account (Chapter 3, Create and Download the GCS Credentials File).
  2. Creating an environment file to map out the Block Storage settings required (Chapter 4, Create the Environment File). This environment file will also use the service account credentials created in the previous step.
  3. Re-deploying the overcloud using the environment file you created (Chapter 5, Re-Deploy the Overcloud).

The following sections describe each step in greater detail.
