为什么OpenStack会将图像与快照区分开来?

通常,https://serverfault.com/a/268727/126950

> snapshot =精确捕获特定时刻卷的内容,包括其所有数据.
> image =系统的总快照(不保存用户数据)

但是,http://docs.openstack.org/folsom/openstack-ops/content/snapsnots.html

In OpenStack, an instance snapshot is an image. The only difference
between an image that you upload directly to glance and an image you
create by snapshot is that an image created by snapshot has additional
properties in the glance database.

那么为什么OpenStack会将图像与快照区分开来呢?

最佳答案
两者之间没有任何有意义的区别,只有OpenStack仪表板才能区分图像和快照.我将此问题作为UI bug提交了一段时间,并且在即将发布的(哈瓦那)OpenStack版本中已经是fixed.
