Simplify the Consumption of Persistent Volumes (PV) in Kubernetes
Persistent storage for stateful applications is a major inhibitor in the broad adoption of containers for the enterprise. NetApp was the first to offer a robust, open source solution to address this gap, and has since increased its investment and participation in the community and its partner ecosystem to shape the way containers approach data management.
Container technology is an important piece of NetApp’s Data Fabric vision, and we want to help our customers get the most out of their NetApp investment; simplifying the deployment of containers throughout the enterprise while protecting and managing data, wherever, whenever — across the fabric.
Trident is a dynamic storage orchestrator that provides the ability to manage storage resources across all major NetApp storage platforms. It natively integrates with Kubernetes in order to dynamically provision persistent volume requests on demand, at the time of the request. Additionally, Trident has a REST interface which can be used by any application to create and manage storage across the configured resources. Trident is also fully supported by NetApp.
- Kubernetes and REST interface(s) for consuming storage resources
- Compatible with:
– Element and HCI
– E-Series, and Cloud Volumes Services
- Create and provision against meta-classes of storage with common characteristics, providing abstracted pools of storage to the consumer
- Deploy as a standalone application to a physical/virtual host, as a container, or as a Kubernetes pod
