Providing Containerized Cinder Services to Baremetal Kubernetes Clusters
Recorded Dec 13 09:30 pm
About this Webinar
Kubernetes deployments running on OpenStack clusters require a full OpenStack instance including Keystone, Nova, and Cinder services.
This talk presents a more pervasive and simplified deployment architecture by integrating Containerized standalone Cinder services with baremetal Kubernetes. Cinder services offer many storage features that are still missing in Kubernetes. Cinder is supported by many storage vendors, with over 70 storage drivers in its repository. A Containerized standalone Cinder service makes these features and extensive storage products available to Kubernetes clusters, quickly and easily.
Key to this architecture is an external Kubernetes volume provisioner that provisions Cinder volumes transparently and converts Cinder volumes to Kubernetes supported storage types, such as iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, or Ceph RBD.
We'll show you how the combination of the services above with a true Next Generation Data Center Storage (NGDC) Solution like NetApp SolidFire simplifies and accelerates your ability to leverage persistence in a bare metal Kubernetes cluster. While providing things must have features like multi-tenancy, automation and guaranteed Quality of Service.
