In the Container Service for Kubernetes (ACK) console, you can create an application from an image or a template. When you create the application, you can specify a persistent volume claim (PVC) that the application uses to request physical storage. In this example, an application is created from an image. You can also create an application from a template and specify a PVC in the template. For more information, see Use Alibaba Cloud disks as volumes.
