What is Kubernetes storage?

Kubernetes applications are very different from traditional applications.  They’re made up of many parts—containers, pods, volumes, configuration—deployed at much higher densities, and updated much more frequently. As a result, storage optimized for traditional applications does not work well for Kubernetes.

People also ask:

1. How do you backup a Kubernetes application?

Unlike traditional applications that can be backed up using server-based snapshots, Kubernetes applications comprise multiple components—containers, pods, volumes, configuration—that are spread across a cluster of servers.  As a result, all these components must be backed up together in order to facilitate fast recovery.

2. Can I use cloud storage for containers?

Cloud storage like Amazon EBS, Google Persistent Disk, and Azure Managed Disk can be used for containers; however, you should run a software-defined container-storage layer on top of these cloud disks in order to achieve container-granular HA, data security, and backup and recovery.

3. What does Portworx bring to Pure?

Portworx is a Kubernetes data-services platform designed to provide persistent storage, data protection, disaster recovery, and other capabilities for containerized applications. While Portworx was designed from the bottom up to run on any storage platform, Pure’s massively parallel and high-performing all-flash storage solutions are the perfect hardware counterpart for your Kubernetes-powered apps. Together, Pure and Portworx provide a complete data storage infrastructure solution capable of delivering a Modern Data Experience™.
