MapR Kubernetes Ecosystem

This section describes the MapR Kubernetes Ecosystem, which includes Kubernetes operators and compute spaces, the Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver for multiple container orchestration systems, and the FlexVolume driver for Kubernetes.

The following table describes these features:
Operators and Compute Spaces The newest enhancement to the MapR Kubernetes Ecosystem, operators and compute spaces enable applications in a Kubernetes cluster (Spark and Drill in the current release) to access MapR storage.
MapR CSI Storage Plugin The CSI Storage Plugin is a volume driver that uses the industry-standard container-storage interface to expose the MapR Data Platform to workloads on container orchestration systems.
MapR Data Fabric for Kubernetes FlexVolume Driver The FlexVolume Driver is a set of Docker containers that provide persistent storage for Kubernetes objects through the MapR Filesystem.
