OpenEBS is an open source storage platform that provides persistent and containerized block storage for DevOps and container environments.
OpenEBS can be deployed on any Kubernetes cluster – either in the cloud, on-premise or developer laptop (minikube). OpenEBS itself is deployed as just another container on your cluster and enables storage services that can be designated on a per pod, application, cluster or container level.
You can say:
Your storage controller is a container that follows around your workloads, very different than Yet Another Scale-out Storage System (“!YASSS”)
Granular monitoring through Prometheus and Grafana
Runs on top of EBS to improve resiliency, to limit lock-in, and for better integration with Kubernetes
Each workload and hence, each team working on dynamic container based workloads has their own storage, instead of being managed by the central storage
OpenEBS is the only broadly adopted open source block storage written mostly in Go
When you write your data to OpenEBS you write to an open source, highly flexible data management layer that allows you to manage your exposure to each cloud or data center
OpenEBS enables the use of containers for mission-critical, persistent workloads. OpenEBS is containerized storage and related storage services.
OpenEBS allows you to treat your persistent workload containers, such as DBs on containers, just like other containers. OpenEBS itself is deployed as just another container on your host and enables storage services that can be designated on a per pod, application, cluster or container level, including:
OpenEBS can scale to include an arbitrarily large number of containerized storage controllers. Thanks in part to some advancements in the metadata management which remove a common bottleneck to scaling out storage performance.
There are at least four common reasons given for running OpenEBS on Amazon EBS:
