Keeping the State of Apps 6: Introduction to StatefulSets

In previous parts of this series, we walked you through StorageClass as one of the Kubernetes objects for data persistence. Let’s now look at another persistent data object referred to as a StatefulSet. We’ll cover the topics below and some hands-on practice to show you the functionalities of this object.


Keeping the State of Apps 5: Introduction to Storage Classes

The previous installment in this series outlined two volume provisioning methods, static and dynamic. The exercise on creating a PersistentVolume was based on static volume provisioning, while this segment will focus on the dynamic method using StorageClass. You’ll learn how to make a volume request of any size, without worrying about whether or not it’s available in the storage pool.
