Managing Storage in Kubernetes

Linux Academy

This temporary nature would have us assume that storage would be difficult to manage. Kubernetes allows you to natively create and manage storage decoupled from pods. In order to provide storage to our pods, we have to place the disk in the same region as our cluster. You will see an output similar to this, where the “location” is what we are trying to obtain: Creating Persistent Storage. Delete the Pod to Demonstrate Persistent Storage.

How Kubernetes Provides Networking and Storage to Applications
