Abstract: 

We are now seeing the emergence of new generation application workloads in big data analytics, AI/ML, in-memory databases - and on the edge, that are creating new demands on storage. These applications are being deployed and managed on Kubernetes, with a need for fast and agile access to storage. Automated provisioning through CSI, the Container Storage Interface for block and file volumes is already being embraced. In this session, we will discuss the fit of object storage for unstructured data generated by these applications, and the emergence of object storage provisioning operators such as COSI, the Container Object Storage Interface from CNCF and Kubernetes’ SIG-Storage, as a way for simplifying and automating object storage provisioning.
