Kubernetes Persistent Volumes Easily

Cloud volumes vs. persistent volumes

Managing Persistent Volumes (PVs) in Kubernetes can be confusing. This article will walk you through the basics of PersistentVolumes and what to do when recycling your PV.

Persistent Volumes are storage resources that can be provisioned by administrators or automatically by a Storage Class. You can use them for many advanced purposes. They allow you to share data between containers. They can also limit access to specific nodes in the cluster.

You can create a Persistent Volume claim by adding a persistent volume claim section to the pod template. This section allows you to specify the storage class and the type of access you want to allow to the volume. It is also possible to specify the node affinity for the volume.

Network file systems vs. persistent volumes

Using Kubernetes persistent volumes provides the ability to store data within any Pod. This persistent data allows it to survive Pod restarts and share data between Pods—a pre-existing persistent disk backs persistent volumes.

PVCs can be created and deleted using the API. They can also be reclaimed. This is the default reclaim policy. You can configure the reclaim policy to either retain or delete the PV.

You can also configure your persistent volumes to be read-only, many, or read-only many. This allows multiple nodes to be in read-only mode or read-write mode. This is useful for applications that need to store data that must survive restarts.

Delete reclaim policy

Delete reclaim policy for Kubernetes persistent volumes is not supported by Compute Engine persistent disks. The Kubernetes Delete reclaim policy for persistent volumes does not have a clear-cut answer to “how” but can tell you what to do with the volume when the Persistent Volume is unbound.

The reclaim policy is not used for newly-created persistent volumes, which means that the Persistent Volume is unavailable for new claims. Instead, the cluster uses the claim to get the backing claim.

Storage classes

Using persistent volumes (PVCs) is a method of managing the storage of containers in Kubernetes. Pods use PVCs to access the storage. They are different from regular volumes. They allow you to limit the access of pods to nodes. They also provide the option of expanding the volume size. They can be created using either storage plug-ins or raw block devices directly.

When creating a PVC, you must specify a valid DNS subdomain name. Your PVC will not have a storage class name if you don’t. When creating a PVC with no storage class name, the cluster will treat it differently than a PVC with a storage class name.

Binds are exclusive

Whether a database or content management application, a persistent volume can help store data long after the pod’s lifecycle. They simplify the deployment of stateful distributed applications, allow for easy scaling, and allow quick replacement of resources in the event of failure.

Kubernetes supports persistent volumes in several ways. For starters, a persistent volume resource is a set of data that a user can request to be stored. This resource may include an unstructured key value map.

Storage plug-ins

Using storage plug-ins can make it easy to understand Kubernetes persistent volumes. They provide a list of the available storage types, including their access modes.

Persistent volumes are used for applications that require persistent data, such as database applications. Kubernetes can dynamically provision a persistent volume, which can be local or cloud storage. There are two common uses for persistent volumes: storing data outside of the typical lifecycle of a pod and limiting access to specific nodes.

Container Storage Interface (CSI) defines a set of standardized storage plug-ins which provide the ability to provision storage resources to PODs.
