Preview: Azure Container Storage in AKS

Published date: November 06, 2023

Azure Container Storage (in preview) provides highly scalable, cost-effective persistent volumes, built natively for containers. You can now deploy and use Azure Container Storage seamlessly via the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) cluster create or update preview experience in 26 regions, simplifying volume provisioning and management of stateful container applications on AKS. Azure Container Storage provides rapid scale out of volumes, reduced pod failover time, reduced total cost of ownership, consistently across different block storage options, including ephemeral disks, Azure Disks and Azure Elastic SAN.

With this preview update you can now,

  • Configure multi-zone storage pools for high availability and redundancy
  • Secure storage pools using server-side encryption with customer managed keys
  • Dynamically resize volumes
  • Protect and recover volumes in a storage pool using snapshot and clone
