What you'll learn

  • Explore a framework to simplify storage control so that developers are free to use any storage

Description

We live in a world of multicontainer orchestrators (COs), and that’s not going to change anytime soon. But how do you know if the storage you would like to use is supported by the CO? How can you ensure the application performs as desired when running in a different CO using a different storage infrastructure? OpenSDS is developing an idea that could be key to providing you the use any storage and ensuring applications run similarly with any CO, regardless of the underlying storage.

Steven Tan offers an overview a framework to simplify storage control so that developers are free to use any storage, covering architecture and design, use cases, and a demo of how you can use it in your microservice architecture.
