Kubernetes : Use External Storage
2022/11/02
 
Configure Persistent Storage in Kubernetes Cluster.
This example is based on the environment like follows.
For example, run NFS Server on Control Plane Node and configure Pods can use NFS area as external storage.

       eth0|10.0.0.25              eth0|10.0.0.71             eth0|10.0.0.72

[1]
Run NFS Server on Control Plane Node, refer to here.
On this example, configure [/home/nfsshare] directory as NFS share.
[2] Create PV (Persistent Volume) object and PVC (Persistent Volume Claim) object on Control Plane Node.
# create PV definition

root@ctrl:~#
vi nfs-pv.yml
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolume
metadata:
  # any PV name
  name: nfs-pv
spec:
  capacity:
    # storage size
    storage: 10Gi
  accessModes:
    # Access Modes:
    # - ReadWriteMany (RW from multi nodes)
    # - ReadWriteOnce (RW from a node)
    # - ReadOnlyMany (R from multi nodes)
    - ReadWriteMany
  persistentVolumeReclaimPolicy:
    # retain even if pods terminate
    Retain
  nfs:
    # NFS server's definition
    path: /home/nfsshare
    server: 10.0.0.25
    readOnly: false

root@ctrl:~#
kubectl create -f nfs-pv.yml

persistentvolume "nfs-pv" created
root@ctrl:~#
kubectl get pv

NAME     CAPACITY   ACCESS MODES   RECLAIM POLICY   STATUS      CLAIM   STORAGECLASS   REASON   AGE

# create PVC definition

root@ctrl:~#
vi nfs-pvc.yml
apiVersion: v1
kind: PersistentVolumeClaim
metadata:
  # any PVC name
  name: nfs-pvc
spec:
  accessModes:
  - ReadWriteMany
  resources:
     requests:
       storage: 10Gi

root@ctrl:~#
kubectl create -f nfs-pvc.yml

persistentvolumeclaim "nfs-pvc" created
root@ctrl:~#
kubectl get pvc

NAME      STATUS   VOLUME   CAPACITY   ACCESS MODES   STORAGECLASS   AGE
nfs-pvc   Bound    nfs-pv   10Gi       RWX                           11s
[3] Create Pods with PVC above.
