Introduction to cloud-native storage

Persistent storage for dynamic workloads

When considering a move from a hosted or public container infrastructure solution it is important to think about what you will need from a storage system. Cloud-native application delivery is highly dynamic, and persistent storage tends to be static, what concepts are important to understand to safely bring the two together?

A Ceph based storage system will give you much greater control over cost, but you will need to consider the needs of your users, the access methods of their applications, their performance requirements, and most importantly how to protect the data that your organisation relies on. It sounds complicated, but it doesn’t have to be.
