Part of the power of Kubernetes containers comes from their ephemeral nature. They can be easily created, destroyed, and replaced, and this makes them easy to manage. However, sometimes we need to maintain persistent data that survives beyond the life of a pod. In this lab, we will go through how to implement state persistence using PersistentVolumes and PersistentVolume claims. We will create persistent storage and consume it using a pod.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
