Persistent Volume Claim


Persistent Volume Claim abstracts consumption of storage resource. Say we have two Persistent Volumes 10GB each created and available. Pod is created with Persistent Volume Claim for 10GB storage. One of those two available 10GB Persistent Volumes will be consumed by the Claim and assigned to the Pod.

Abbreviated alias: pvc
