Volumes are handled very differently in Kubernetes compared to Apache Mesos. In fact, Kubernetes persistent volumes support Azure, vCloud, and AWS. Kubernetes also supports Ceph, Flocker, Gluster FS, and even Git. This extensive support opens up opportunities for storing your data on the cloud and also enables easy backups.
To take a look at the complete set of supported volumes, go to http://kubernetes.io/docs/user-guide/volumes/#types-of-volumes .
In this recipe, we will learn how to map the volume where our data files are stored in the geolocation microservice.
