Containerizing applications that require data persistence or shared storage is often challenging since containers are ephemeral in nature, are scaled in and out dynamically, and typically clear any saved state when terminated. However, long-running applications can benefit from keeping state in durable file storage. Your modern data-intensive applications require fast access to shared data. In this session you will learn about Amazon Elastic File System (EFS), a serverless, elastic, and cloud native shared file system that enables data to be persisted separately from compute for your Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) deployments. We’ll cover different use cases, architecture techniques, and best practices for using Amazon EFS serverless storage to share and persist data between K8s clusters. You’ll gain an understanding of the EFS Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver, and how it simplifies configuring elastic file storage for Kubernetes clusters.
