Inside the StorageOS container
Getting started with StorageOS and Kubernetes
StorageOS natively integrates with Kubernetes. With StorageOS, users can request storage volumes using Persistent Volume Claims (PVCs), monitor volumes and add and remove nodes. Learn more from our docs.
How StorageOS Works
StorageOS aggregates storage across all nodes in a cluster into a pool. It allows volumes to be provisioned from the pool and for containers to mount those volumes from anywhere in the cluster. StorageOS transparently redirects reads and writes to the appropriate volume, so the container is unaware of whether it is accessing local storage or remote storage. Volumes are thin provisioned to avoid consuming disk space unnecessarily.
StorageOS features are all enabled/disabled by applying labels to volumes. Labels can be passed to StorageOS via PersistentVolumeClaims (PVCs) or can be applied to volumes using the StorageOS CLI or GUI.
