Data Storage

  • Any local or remote storage must be thought of as a hard drive plugged into the K8 cluster. K8 does not manage any data persistence. So, the system admin is responsible for backing up the data storage and managing it.
  • Working with stateful pods is difficult. So, it is a common practice to host databases outside the K8 cluster and use K8 only for stateless applications.
