[openstack-dev] [openstack-infra] [tempest] [qa] How to make it possible to support multiple vendor storage drivers

Hi everyone,

I have submitted a spec in cinder and will implement the integration test 
cases for volume migration for cinder in tempest.
The spec link is: https://review.openstack.org/#/c/186327

Volume migration integration tests need a devstack environment configured 
with multiple back-ends and multiple vendor drivers.
Currently I am write the volume migration cases for multiple back-ends and 
vendor drivers, for example, one back-end for LVM and the other for 
However, we need to MANUALLY configure the devstack environment to both 
LVM and Storwize and then run the tests.

I was wondering if our gate test can AUTOMATICALLY connect to different 
cinder back-end storage and setup the environment. Is it something that we 
can make it happen in OpenStack?
For example, if I set 
CINDER_ENABLED_BACKENDS=storwize:storwize-1,lvm:lvmdriver-1 in localrc, 
the devstack will configure one back-end of LVM and the other back-end of 
storwize for me. I need help from folks in [openstack-infra] [tempest] 
[qa] teams for this potential work item.

Thank you very much.

Best wishes,
