Kubernetes applications often rely on persistent volumes (PVs) and persistent volume claims (PVCs) to manage data.
When Replicated creates a Kubernetes appliance, a custom storage class named
default is automatically created that will be available to the application for persistent volumes provisioned by Rook.
Replicated will set the
storageClassName on all PersistentVolumeClaims in your application, allowing customers to use an alternative provisioner, such as
standard on GKE.
For more information on using Persistent Volumes with Kubernetes, see the Kubernetes Documentation.
For information on snapshotting Kubernetes volumes, see the Replicated snapshots documentation for Kubernetes.
For more information on managing the storage needs of Kubernetes in customer environments, see Managing Storage.
