The storage management system

Kubernetes Volume

Review previous parts of this series for better understanding:

This is the sixth part of the Kubernetes series. In this part I will try to add more insights into Kubernetes Volume


Volumeis simply an abstraction of data in the form of file and directory within a Pod. It exists as long as its Pod exists.

The lifecycle of a Volume is tied to the lifecycle of the Pod, but not to that of a Container. If a container within a Pod dies, the Volume persists and the newly launched container will be able to mount the same Volume and access its data. When a Pod gets restarted or dies, so do its Volumes, although if the Volumes consist of cloud block storage, they will simply be unmounted with data still accessible by future Pods.
