Chapter 4. External storage services

Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage can make services from an external Red Hat Ceph Storage cluster available for consumption from OpenShift Container Platform clusters running on the following platforms:

  • Bare Metal
  • VMware vSphere

The OpenShift Container Storage operators create and manage services to satisfy persistent volume and object bucket claims against external services. External cluster resources make additional storage classes available to applications. External clusters are not deployed or managed by operators.
