Extend Kubernetes Persistent Volumes
In Kubernetes it is possible to use Persistent Volumes to add persistent storage to your Docker containers. When creating a Persistent Volume (Claim) you have to configure a storage type and storage capacity. When your application gets successful and your storage exceeds the limits, you have to extend the volume or create a new persistent volume. The latter isn’t a feasible solution in a production environment, but extending a persistent volume isn’t supported out-of-the-box in Kubernetes. There is a solution though! Extending the volume outside Kubernetes!
