Deploying stateful applications in Kubernetes can be a daunting task for those new to the storage landscape. Should a deployer choose block, file, object, or a database? What is volume? And can it be used by multiple applications simultaneously? Application persistence can be a complicated subject to understand.
The CNCF Storage SIG released the CNCF Storage Landscape white paper at Kubecon Shanghai and Seattle to help explain the options available, the storage attributes to be aware of and why these are important for different use cases. This will help an application developer choose the right storage solutions for persistence in their application.
In this webinar, CNCF Storage SIG will present an overview of storage technologies as explained in the white paper, and a technical overview of how storage is consumed by containerized stateful applications running in Kubernetes.
The whitepaper is available from the CNCF Storage SIG page: https://github.com/cncf/sig-storage
