Reviewing your KinD cluster
With a Kubernetes cluster now available, we have the ability to look at Kubernetes objects first-hand. This will help you understand the previous chapter, where we covered many of the base objects included in a Kubernetes cluster. In particular, we will discuss the storage objects that are included with your KinD cluster.
KinD storage objects
Remember that KinD includes Rancher's auto-provisioner to provide automated persistent disk management for the cluster. In Chapter 5, Kubernetes Bootcamp, we went over the storage-related objects, and now that we have a cluster with a storage system configured, we can explain them in greater detail.
There is one object that the auto-provisioner does not require since it uses a base Kubernetes feature: it does not require a
CSIdriver. Since the ability to use local host paths as PVCs is part of Kubernetes, we will not see any
CSIdriver objects in our KinD cluster.
