Persistent storage for containers is a hot topic these days. While containers do a great job of storing application logic, they do not offer a built-in solution for storing application data across the lifecycle of containers.

They also require that the underlying storage layer provide all the enterprise features available to applications that are deployed in, say, virtualized environments.

Another important consideration is that because many view containers as the next step in the evolution of server virtualization, it’s critical to provide persistent storage options to administrators because hypervisors have always allowed for persistent storage in one form or the other.

One approach is to use traditional storage appliances that support legacy applications. This is a natural inclination and assumption, but… the wrong one.
