Abstract: 

Cloud computing frameworks like Kubernetes are designed to address containerized application management using "service" level abstraction for delivering smart data center manageability. Storage management intelligence and interfaces need to evolve to support "service" oriented abstraction. Having every computing framework reinvent the storage integration makes the storage management more complex from end user perspective. Moreover it adds significant burden on storage vendors to write drivers and certify for every orchestration stack which is least desirable. In this session, we present industry wide effort to develop unified storage management interfaces that work across traditional and cloud computing frameworks and eliminate the need to reinvent storage integration.
