Abstract: TBA

“The State of Storage Access in Container Infrastructures”, Felix Hupfeld

Abstract: 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.



Felix Hupfeld, CTO and co-founder at Quobyte - Felix manages Quobyte’s technology and pushes development forward. Before that, he worked as a tech lead and capacity planner in Google’s infrastructure team (2009–2013). He was the architect and project manager for XtreemFS (2006–2009). Felix’s PhD was on distributed storage.
