The pace of development of Kubernetes is showing no signs of slowing. And when it comes to stateful workloads it may even be accelerating. We at MayaData should know as we contribute upstream to Kubernetes and related projects extensively.
In this hands on workshop we will review best practices for data and storage management on Kubernetes. Specifically we will go over Persistent Volumes (PVs) Persistent Volume Claims (PVCs) and how k8s provisions them and how to manage them.
Next up will be the dynamic provisioners and how they can be used to setup PVs and PVCs dynamically and show how we can build a resilient storage system using Container Attached Storage (CAS) potentially in addition to other approaches.
We will also address Storage Engines, Storage Schemas, and Policies and how they can help you build a fully DevOps centric deployment with persistent storage, while not losing any of agility that k8s provides.
Lastly we will show how it all works together with the help of recent improvements in k8s snapshots and how they can be used to create 50 shades of green/blue CI/CD pipelines for stateful workloads
