Providing Containerized Cinder Services to Baremetal Kubernetes Clusters [I] - John Griffith, NetApp & Huamin Chen, Red Hat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Kubernetes deployments running on OpenStack clusters require a full OpenStack: 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 cluster.

Key to this architecture is a Kubernetes volume provisioner that provisions Cinder volumes and transparently converts Cinder volumes to Kubernetes supported storage types, such as iSCSI, Fibre Channel, NFS, or Ceph RBD.

Based on the these technologies, the new architecture enables enterprise customers to deploy Container services in a dedicated cluster and consume advanced storage features.
