Just before the Christmas holiday, NetApp delivered a very special, open source, present: Trident, a storage orchestrator which integrates with Kubernetes for dynamic provisioning of persistent volumes. Trident is configured to manage one or more storage systems while providing a provisioner for persistent volumes in Kubernetes, natively giving the ability for applications to consume the storage that they need, when they need it, and where they need it. Additionally, Trident has a REST interface for any application to consume capacity on demand.
This week we welcome Garrett Mueller (@innergy), Technical Director for NetApp, to the podcast to discuss Trident, the goal of the project, and why it’s important for anyone who is using Kubernetes. If you’re interested in more information about Trident, be sure to look on netapp.io or visit us in the #containers Slack channel.
If you are new to the podcast, tune into any of our previous episodes to see what you may have missed. You can find Tech ONTAP Podcast episodes on the NetApp Blog.
