Kuberenets Backing Store and etcd:

  • Components of K8s cluster each needs level of protection in case of disaster.

  • K8s resources are stored in an etcd (can be backed by MariaDB)

  • etcd is a strongly consistent, disctributed key-value store that provides a reliable way to store data that needs to be accessed by distributed systems.

  • Things that use etcd:

    • K8s

    • CoreDNS

    • Rook


  • It automates the tasks of storage administrators

  • It turns distributed storage system into self managing, self-scaling, self-healing storage service


  • Offers high performance, S3 compatible object storage

  • Native to k8s, MinIo is the only object storage suite available for cloud

  • It is open sourced under GNU license
