HammerSpace announced the ability to provide a global namespace for persistent storage in Kubernetes environments. HammerSpace has tackled this issue with what they are calling data-as-a-microservice. This is not a new type of K8s specific storage, which HammerSpace thinks is about the last thing the Kubernetes world needs. More importantly, HammerSpace is trying to answer the question, “How do we get storage to evolving workloads?”
