For our 10th installation of the data on k8s community meetup, we talk with CEO of Mayadata Evan Powell about container attached storage, Portworx acquisition, openEBS, can open source make it, and we geek out a bit with questions from the audience.
// Key takeaways:
Kubernetes - extended by CAS and other software - is not just solving the problems of running data on Kubernetes, it is fast becoming the preferred platform for data.
Back in 2018 the CNCF published a blog we wrote called Container Attached Storage. Today - September 22nd 2020 - a new blog is appearing on their site updating Container Attached Storage. https://bit.ly/2FYGgeR
This talk borrows very heavily from that blog. What is CAS? Why would anyone use Kubernetes itself for storage? How does a microservices architecture help? Why is shared storage at the end of the road - though still used underneath CAS sometimes?
