I have been experimenting with the early access of Kubernetes. In GKE, for example, it’s easy to setup a standard VM with an NFS server configured, and then install the Helm chart for nfs-client-provisioner so you can have shared storage among pods (for things like redundant Django apps running in different pods). I tried this with DO and it did not work, even when I monkeyed with the firewall settings for the k8s nodes.
I am unaware of another inexpensive shared storage option, the standard PVCs offered by DO don’t permit ReadWriteMany. Does anyone have a better solution?
