Container Service can automatically bind Kubernetes pods to Alibaba Cloud disks, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and Object Storage Service (OSS).

Currently, the Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver supports both static and dynamic volumes. The following table describes the support for static and dynamic volumes by each storage service.

Alibaba Cloud disk Static volumes attached through the CSI driver are supported.

You can use a static volume by creating a persistent volume (PV) and a persistent volume claim (PVC).

Supported
Alibaba Cloud NAS Static volumes attached through the CSI driver are supported.

You can use a static volume by creating a PV and a PVC.

Supported
Alibaba Cloud OSS Static volumes attached through the CSI driver are supported.

You can use a static volume by creating a PV and a PVC.

Supported versions

  • When Kubernetes 1.14 or a later version is used, the FlexVolume and CSI plug-ins are supported.
