Project Description

Provide helm chart examples CSI driver support on various cloud providers and storage types,  for  example Azure Azurefile,  AWS EFS and FSx Lustre, etc.

HPCC Helm char currently has basic EFS CSI driver support but AWS update the configuration and documentation.  

Azurefile with CSI driver: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/aks/azure-files-csi. Current HPCC Helm Chart example for Azure File (without CSI driver): https://github.com/hpcc-systems/helm-chart/tree/master/helm/examples/azure

AWS EFS with CSI driver: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/eks/latest/userguide/efs-csi.html. Current HPCC Helm Chart example for AWS EFS  (without CSI driver): https://github.com/hpcc-systems/helm-chart/tree/master/helm/examples/efs

AWS FSx Lustre with CSI driver: https://docs.aws.amazon.com/eks/latest/userguide/fsx-csi.html. It is optional

Student can based on current Azure File and EFS examples and adapt them to CSI driver.

Student work experience opportunities also exist for students who want to suggest their own project idea. Project suggestions must be relevant to HPCC Systems and of benefit to our open source community. 

This project is mainly for community user instead of HPCCSystems internal users. 

Azure and AWS account will be provided for the student of project.


There are probably other similar storage solutions in public clouds. We already have one for EFS/CSI. More information coming soon.
