https://www.ondat.io/ (formerly StorageOS), the cloud native storage provider, https://www.ondat.io/blog/ondat-community-edition-pricing the launch of a free community edition, pay-to-go, and custom enterprise editions of its storage platform. Ondat calls itself a data mesh for block storage built for Kubernetes based on the native constructs such as persistent volumes, persistent volume claims, and snapshots. It aggregates multiple block storage devices available to the nodes to deliver a single, unified storage layer consumed by Kubernetes.
Ondat Community Edition aims to solve this problem by offering support for ample storage and unlimited nodes.
I decided to give Ondat Community Edition a try by installing it in one of my on-prem clusters running in a bare metal environment.
