Capacity-aware Dynamic Volume Provisioning For LVM Local Storage - Kazuhito Matsuda & Satoru Takeuchi, Cybozu

This session presents a summary of the existing Kubernetes features to use local storage devices (e.g. hostPath and local persistent volumes) in first, then introduces a novel CSI plugin named TopoLVM.

Applications that can replicate data themselves (e.g. Elasticsearch, MySQL, Ceph) are promising users of local storage because of their needs for lower prices and higher I/O performance storage. Although existing ways enable to use of local storage, the following desired features are not provided yet:

- Raw block volume
- Capacity-aware dynamic provision
- Online volume resizing

To satisfy these features, the authors created a novel CSI plugin named TopoLVM. It dynamically creates logical volumes of LVM and extends the standard Pod scheduler to consider volume group capacity of each node. Besides, it intends to support more features including online resizing.
