In previous posts we have deployed various StorageClass’s, namely the VMware CSI driver and the NetApp Trident CSI driver. As the names suggest they use different underlying storage technologies, The VMware CSI driver uses VMware datastores and the NetApp Trident CSI drivers uses NetApp.
Welcome to part 2 of this blog series :), following on from part 1, let’s continue with our ONTAP configuration and setup and get it hooked into our Kubernetes cluster .
Today’s idea is to configure Netapp trident as our CSI provider so we can consume NetApp ONTAP storage for our Kubernetes cluster. This will be a multi part blog series as there is just to much to cover in a single post.
In the previous post we mentioned a Kubernetes cluster is made up of a CNI, CSI and a container runtime.We previously went through the process of deploying our container runtime(containerd) and our network interface(calico) and managed to bootstrap the whole setup together forming our functional cluster, Awesome! Continuing with our learning here as always I’mContinue reading “The Kubernetes Journey – CSI and Kasten Backups”
Looking at how IT is changing it is undeniable that containers has become the latest hot topic and rightfully so, arguably becoming the next step in the virtualization lifecycle, Not that it should be viewed as a replacement for VMs, in fact i think we will be seeing containers and VMs living side by sideContinue reading “The Kubernetes Journey – Setup”
