Quick start for Astra Trident
You can install Astra Trident and get start managing storage resources in a few steps. Before getting started, review Astra Trident requirements.
|For Docker, refer to Astra Trident for Docker.|
Astra Trident offers several installation methods and modes optimized for a variety of environments and organizations.
All worker nodes in the Kubernetes cluster must be able to mount the volumes you have provisioned for your pods.
A backend defines the relationship between Astra Trident and a storage system. It tells Astra Trident how to communicate with that storage system and how Astra Trident should provision volumes from it.
Configure a backend for your storage system
The Kubernetes StorageClass object specifies Astra Trident as the provisioner and allows you to create a storage class to provision volumes with customizable attributes. Astra Trident creates a matching storage class for Kubernetes objects that specify the Astra Trident provisioner.
A PersistentVolume (PV) is a physical storage resource provisioned by the cluster administrator on a Kubernetes cluster. The PersistentVolumeClaim (PVC) is a request for access to the PersistentVolume on the cluster.
Create a PersistentVolume (PV) and a PersistentVolumeClaim (PVC) that uses the configured Kubernetes StorageClass to request access to the PV. You can then mount the PV to a pod.
You can now add additional backends, manage storage classes, manage backends, and perform volume operations.
