Once you have the Quobyte CSI Plugin and Quobyte client running on your Kubernetes cluster you are ready to dynamically provision persistent volume claims form Quobyte. Quobyte’s Policy Engine gives you control over many aspects of your data, such as the redundancy mechanism (replication, EC or auto), storage media (flash, HDD or a combination of both), tiering, encryption, caching or QoS.
Any volume with the Database storage class will now map onto a high performance random IO profile on Quobyte. You can change the policies at any time and most options will be applied immediately (such as cache settings), during a time you specified (data tiering and movement) or apply only to new files (such as redundancy mechanism).
These features are available in all our editions, including the Quobyte Free Edition. If you haven’t installed Quobyte on your Kubernetes cluster yet, check out our tutorial here.
