About this Episode

One of the big topics of discussion at CloudNativeCon/KubeCon EU has been containers and persistent storage--where do you find a find permanent parking spot for the data that you need to run your
containerized application is a distributed dynamic environment?

We saw an interesting demonstration of a new file system technology from Bassam Tabbara, chief technology officer of Quantum, a storage appliance firm. Called Rook, this new software defined storage system that is built on the open source Ceph distributed file system,
and is managed by Kubernetes, the open source container orchestration tool.

In the demonstration Bassam was, directly from the Kubernetes command line, able to spin up a storage volume and plant WordPress and MySQL on different nodes. On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, we wanted to find out more about Rook.
