PersistentVolumes provide a way to treat storage as a dynamic resource in Kubernetes. This lab will allow you to demonstrate your knowledge of PersistentVolumes. You will mount some persistent storage to a container using a PersistentVolume and a PersistentVolumeClaim.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create a PersistentVolume That Allows Claim Expansion
Create a hostPath PersistentVolume with a size of 1Gi that stores data on the host at
/var/output. Ensure that this PersistentVolume is configured so that Pod volumes that use it can be expanded later. In addition, configure the volume so that it will be automatically reusable if the claims using it are deleted.
Note that you may need to create other objects in addition to the PersistentVolume object.
- Create a PersistentVolumeClaim
Create a PersistentVolumeClaim with a size of 100Mi. Make sure it is able to bind to the PersistentVolume.
- Create a Pod That Uses a PersistentVolume for Storage
Create a Pod that uses the PersistentVolume and writes some data to it.
