Cloud Native Storage is integrated with vSphere to enable comprehensive data management for stateful cloud-native applications. It includes a CSI plug-in for Kubernetes and a control plane within vCenter. Using storage that is exposed by vSphere, Cloud Native Storage enables you to create persistent container volumes that are independent of the VM and container life cycle.
