Welcome to this section on storage in kubernetes.

In this section we look at the various storage related concepts, such as:

  • Persistent Volumes
  • Persistent Volume Claims
  • Access Modes
  • Configuring applications with persistent storage

There exist a wide variety of storage options out there and depending on your environment, these options may vary. However, looking at all of them is out of scope of this section.

Here we will focus on the Kubernetes side of storage.

Once you understand these concepts, you should be able to relate that knowledge when implementing any third party storage solutions out there.

  • Storage Drivers
  • Volume Drivers

These concepts will be covered in the next post.

Let's get Started.
