The Kubernetes CSI plug-in implements the Container Storage Interface protocol, which enables containerized applications in Kubernetes clusters to use block storage. To effectively address the challenges of persistent storage, Dell EMC VxFlex provides its unique CSI plug-in. The VxFlex CSI plug-in enables our customers to deliver persistent storage for container-based applications on premises, for both development and production scale.
The following figure depicts a general implementation of the VxFlex CSI plug-in:
