Quartermaster is a framework for managing containerized storage systems like Ceph, GlusterFS, NFS-Ganesha, Rook and others on top of Kubernetes. Quartermaster enables the deployment, installation, and integration of these type of storage systems onto a Kubernetes cluster. Quartermaster abstracts this complexity and presents the client with a simple storage deployment model which is fully integrated with Kubernetes. By simplifying the deployment of storage systems, Quartermaster makes it possible to easily and reliably deploy, upgrade, and get status of a desired storage system in a Kubernetes cluster. Once deployed, a Quartermaster managed storage system could be used to fulfill persistent volume claim requests. Quartermaster can also be used to help the setup and testing of PersistentVolumes provided by containerized storage systems deployed in Kubernetes. Today, Quartermaster supports GlusterFS, but it is designed to easily be extended to support a multitude of storage systems on top of Kubernetes.You can use minikube but only for mock or nfs storage deployments since minikube is only a single node. To create a Kubernetes cluster with storage, it is recommended you use Matchbox/Bootkube or Kubernetes-CentOS. Check driver documentation for any requirements on these systems.
