Although more and more companies choose to containerize their applications and to use Kubernetes to orchestrate their containers, they continue to face a common challenge: how to preserve application data even after a container closes. Without the ability to persist data, containers might seem to have limited use in many workloads, especially in stateful applications and database architectures. Fortunately many solutions exist. Join Rancher Labs as we do a deep dive into storage solutions for Docker containers and Kubernetes and discuss best practices for a wide variety of storage use cases.
This free online training covers Kubernetes persistent storage. We cover Volume, PV, PVC, Storage Class, the implications of the RWO vs RWM storage systems, and the differences between Deployment and StatefulSet. You'll see Project Longhorn demo of real-life use cases for Kubernetes persistent storage.
