In this article we focus on side-by-side block and filesystem requests using Kubernetes.​ The driver for this is it will allow us to deploy Aerospike using Aerospike's all flash mode.

Storing database values on a raw block device with index information on file can bring significant cost reductions, especially when considering use cases for Aerospike’s All-Flash. To support such a workload, you can configure Aerospike to use NVMe Flash drives as the primary index store.

When using the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator, the complexity of configuring a high performance distributed database is abstracted away, making the task of instantiating an Aerospike database incredibly easy. However, even though Kubernetes leads us towards expecting equivalent results regardless of platform, we need to be mindful of the peculiarities of individual frameworks, particularly if we are repeatedly iterating processes. ​ This article focuses on AWS EKS provisioned storage which is dynamically created when using the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator. Ensuring that storage has been fully deleted and other redundant resources removed is a necessary housekeeping step if you are to avoid unwelcome AWS charges. ​
