Hello and welcome! You are at the right place to get started with Trident.
Trident is a simple, yet powerful dynamic provisioner that integrates with Kubernetes Persistent Volume framework and provides a unified interface for storage provisioning from NetApp ONTAP, SolidFire/HCI, E-Series storage systems, and soon for NetApp Cloud Volumes. It is deployed as a highly available Kubernetes deployment and communicates with the API server to process pod storage requests in the form of Persistent Volume Claims (PVCs)
