With the proliferation of clusters in the Kubernetes ecosystem, the management of persistent data for applications is becoming critical as organizations scale out their environments. When managing data, organizations need a cloud-native, storage independent solution to ensure data is consistent and available across their infrastructure.
In this session, we will:
  • explore the current state of the data replication landscape,
  • examine the challenges of managing stateful data at the cluster scope, and
  • introduce a new asynchronous data replication tool, VolSync, that can help address these challenges.
This presentation will demonstrate a cloud-native solution for data replication that DevOps/SRE/Technical teams can use as a part of their multi-cluster data management strategy.
Key takeaways from this session include how to use VolSync for:
  • Disaster recovery: Background replication of application and persistent data.
  • Data distribution
  • Application and data migration
  • Cross-vendor storage migration
  • Cloud to on-prem: In/Out of Kubernetes
  • Simple PV backup to complement GitOps-based workflows
