There is growing fervor to build every application with containers. While the goal of containers is to be disposable and immutable many application layers still require information to persist beyond the state of the container. This presents a significant challenge in expanding the number of applications that can fit the new mold. It becomes compounded even more as applications grow and are deployed and managed through container orchestrators. Imagine the possibilities if we had more direct ability to manage data persistence in our applications.

We'll talk about the constructs for delivering data persistence to containers as well as provide an overview of project Trident for delivering dynamic storage provisioning in Kubernetes.
