One of the benefits of Kubernetes is the ability to run your applications everywhere in a simple manner. The conversation changes drastically when persistent storage is deployed with the application and the deployment becomes sticky as data has gravity.

In this session, HPE Principal Technical Marketing Engineer and Rancher Director of Community Adrian Goins will cover some of the data management capabilities needed to address hybrid cloud use cases for Kubernetes. This includes hybrid cloud CI/CD pipelines, workload transitions and improving business outcomes by making data available where needed across clouds.
