Hello, Arne

Each share driver has capability called "storage_protocol". So, for case
you describe, you should just define such extra spec in your share type
that will match value reported by desired backend[s].

It is the purpose of extra specs in share types, you (as cloud admin)
define its connection yourself, either it is strong or not.
