Topic of Talk: Cloud Native storage and best practices to achieve data agility in DevOps

About the Talk:
Cloud native ecosystem is bringing a huge change in the way of DevOps in every cloud native organisation. Developers and operators in cloud native organisations are using tools and platforms like Kubernetes to achieve the agility promised by DevOps and microservices. The tools and best practices for stateless applications have been well established and the results can be seen in the agility of teams using these stateless applications. However, stateful applications pose new challenges to DevOps teams in achieving the agility as the best practices around persistent storage management are still emerging. In this talk, first we discuss the challenges faced by DevOps while dealing with persistent storage handling in stateful applications. Then we discuss the open source tools and best practices for DevOps teams to achieve data agility of cloud native applications.
