7:00 - 7:30p - Matthias Grawinkel - The State of Storage Access in Container Infrastructures

As container infrastructures go from PoC to production, storage becomes one of the most important topics. As storage systems are very diverse and range from SANs over NAS filers to software-defined storage systems and storage of public clouds, there is not one clear-cut solution yet. In this talk we’ll recap the basics of how containers interact with persistent block and file storage, how storage access works in Kubernetes and Mesos, investigate the container-specific problems around storage like failover and access control, and discuss the pros and cons of various approaches. We also give a short outlook on the recent standardization effort called Container Storage Interface (CSI).
