Storage Requests

On OGC, Storage unifies persistent and ephemeral storage into one configuration model. This simplifies and expedites package definition.

The overall concept for storage revolves around the Storage Requests, which is a user-declared item that encapsulates a request for persistent or ephemeral storage from a cluster. A Storage Request can be assigned to a Mount on a container. During deployment, the OGC backend will request storage for all the Mounts with assigned Storage Requests and mount the required storage accordingly.

Currently, Persistent storage is managed on OGC. Soon we'll be releasing more features catering to other storage types.

Add Storage Requests

Storage requests for persistent storage can be applied to one or more Mounts within a Package.
