Open Source declarative disk configuration system for Kubernetes
Discoblocks can be leveraged by cloud-native data management platforms (like Ondat) to manage backend disks in the cloud.
When using such a data management platform to overcome the block disk device limitation from hyperscalers, a new set of manual operational tasks needs to be considered like:
At the current stage, Discoblocks is leveraging the available hyperscaler CSI (Container Storage Interface) within the Kubernetes cluster to:
Note: An application could be using Discoblocks to get persistent storage but this option would not be safe for production as there will not be any data platform management to address high availability, replication, fencing, and encryption.
