Rook is an open source cloud-native storage orchestrator for Kubernetes, providing the platform, framework, and support for a diverse set of storage solutions to natively integrate with cloud-native environments. In this session, the maintainers of Rook will be presenting a variety of topics that are aimed at all attendees with differing levels of experience. We will begin with an introduction to the project that is suitable for newcomers to learn what problems Rook solves. Then we will be showcasing multiple demos of the various storage providers supported by Rook, providing attendees with a practical and diverse exposure of Rook in action. We will conclude with an exploration of the longer term goals and roadmap of the project, inviting participation and feedback from the community to help steer the project direction and continue solving real problems with storage in the Kubernetes ecosystem.
