With more independent software vendor (ISV) applications being packaged to be deployed via Kubernetes to allow for the simple shifting between execution venues, stateful workloads are becoming a standard pattern within these clusters. Kubernetes is on its way to becoming the industry standard for managing cloud native data applications, with the https://dok.community/data-on-kubernetes-2022-report/ community growing at a rapid pace.

By reading the report, application developers responsible for applications running in these Kubernetes clusters should be able to understand and make better decisions about the correct storage to use.
