Users need persistent data to support their business goals, and regular backups are critical to business continuity. The CSI Snapshot API provides users a consistent way of creating volume snapshots within Kubernetes, regardless of their storage provider. This is a big improvement over the prior, provider-specific methods for creating snapshots.

This session will first cover the basic CSI Snapshot CRDs, as well as demo snapshotting and restoring a stateful application. Additionally, we'll share how disaster recovery tools, such as the open-source Velero, can build on CSI Snapshots, as well as future enhancements coming to CSI, and what migrations from current in-tree cloud provider implementations will look like.

- Overview of the CSI Snapshot CRDs
- Demo of snapshot and restore workflow
- Future direction for application snapshotting and quiescing in CSI
