Kubernetes storage simplified

OpenEBS builds on Kubernetes to enable Stateful applications to easily access Dynamic Local PVs or Replicated PVs. By using the Container Attached Storage pattern users report lower costs, easier management, and more control for their teams.

OpenEBS is a 100% Open Source CNCF project made withheart by MayaData & the community. Prominent users include Arista, Optoro, Orange, Comcast and the CNCF itself.

What is OpenEBS?

    OpenEBS is the leading storage solution for Kubernetes
  • Kubernetes native; runs in userspace
  • Open Source; no vendor lock-in
  • The only multi cloud storage solution

Why OpenEBS?


Multi Cloud Storage

Automated provisioning and storage replication across pods is challenging. OpenEBS makes complex cross-cloud stateful application storage easy.

Built in Kubernetes

Unlike CSI plugins or Linux kernel dependent software, OpenEBS runs entirely in userspace, making deployment and maintenance a snap.


Open Source Leader

The largest, most active Kubernetes storage project with the biggest user base and community, OpenEBS is built by K8s SREs, and experts just like you, tailored to their needs.

OpenEBS runs on any Kubernetes platform such as

Setting up OpenEBS is simple in any Application

OpenEBS orchestrates storage for any Kubernetes stack. Here’s how to get OpenEBS working on some top applications:
