The latest version of the CSI enabled Pure Service Orchestrator is now available. Snaps and Clones for Persistent Volume Claims enables use cases for K8s clusters to now move data between apps and environments. Need to make instant database copies for dev or test? Super easy now.
Since this feature leverages the capabilities of the FlashArray the clones and snaps have zero performance penalty and only consume globally new blocks on the underlying array (saves a ton of space when you make a lot of copies).
Make sure to read more on the Pure Service Orchestrator github repo on what needs to be done to enable these features in your k8s cluster. See below for more information.
