Authors: Ben Swartzlander (NetApp), Saad Ali (Google) Kubernetes v1.13 moves raw block volume support to beta. This feature allows persistent volumes to be exposed inside containers as a block device instead of as a mounted file system. What are block devices? Block devices enable random access to data in fixed-size […]
