This sandbox environment is a fully configured three node Kubernetes cluster.

In this tutorial, you will install StorageOS, create a StorageClass and use it to claim a persistent volume.

StorageOS and Kubernetes

Step 1 of 3

Install StorageOS

In this tutorial, we'll look how to install the StorageOS Cluster Operator. It is a Kubernetes native application developed to deploy and configure StorageOS clusters, and assist with maintenance operations. The operator will deploy a StorageOS cluster based on the configuration specified in the cluster definition.

First we need to install the StorageOS operator using the following yaml manifest.

kubectl create -f https://github.com/storageos/cluster-operator/releases/download/1.5.0/storageos-operator.yaml

Verify the Cluster Operator pod status

kubectl -n storageos-operator get pod -w

The READY 1/1 indicates that storageoscluster resources can be created. Press Ctrl+C to continue once the pod is up.

Create a Secret defining the StorageOS API Username and Password.

kubectl create -f storageos-secret.yaml

StorageOS Installation.

kubectl create -f storageos-cluster.yaml

Verify StorageOS Installation.

kubectl -n storageos get pods -w

The above command watches the pods created by the Cluster Definition example. Note that pods typically take approximately 65 seconds to enter the Running Phase. Press Ctrl+C to continue once the pods are up.

Moreover, you can see more information about the StorageOS Cluster.

kubectl -n storageos-operator describe storageoscluster

You can also verify that StorageOS was installed succesfully using the StorageOS CLI.
