Your storage controller is a container that follows your workloads around; very different than Yet Another Scale out Storage System (“!YASSS”).
Runs on top of EBS -to improve resiliency, to limit lock-in, and for better integration with Kubernetes.
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.
Each workload and hence, each team working on dynamic container based workloads has their own storage, instead of being managed by central storage.
OpenEBS is the only broadly adopted open source block storage written mostly in Go.
We are extending the the hacktoberfest to
our very own OpenEBS HackFest
Hey! If you are in Bangalore, stop by the
OpenSource Cafe for free WiFi and chai/coffee or
book it for your community meeting.
With wonderful and really helpful community and developers, I found it easier to get to know OpenEBS a lot better. I found OpenEBS to be really easy to use as a software defined storage for cloud native applications.

OpenEBS is promising as it has the potential to bring the stability and scalability of Google File System to the masses. Personally, I am looking into a scalable store to cache large chunks of data and am looking forward to evaluate OpenEBS for the same.

I was taking part on hacktoberfest, and used it as opportunity to get to know some interesting projects. That's how I discovered OpenEBS. I liked its features and development. I took one issue, and the developers were very solicit and nice!

A welcoming open source community developing DevOps friendly hyper-converged storage for containers, this is what attracted me to contribute to this project as a DevOps Engineer.
