Longhorn alternatives

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/kubernetes

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • nfs-subdir-external-provisioner

    Dynamic sub-dir volume provisioner on a remote NFS server.

    Depends on how much resiliency you need . Something like https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/nfs-subdir-external-provisioner works well for a lab or non-prod cluster. You could even use something like this in prod if you have access to highly reliably NFS mounts.

  • linstor-server

    High Performance Software-Defined Block Storage for container, cloud and virtualisation. Fully integrated with Docker, Kubernetes, Openstack, Proxmox etc.

    Tbf that isn't distributed storage. You could use DBRD with ZFS over it though, to accomplish this. I plan to try it at some point - I love ZFS, and for my NAS and backup target it's terrific, but I want something that can distribute across my three compute nodes.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • piraeus-operator

    The Piraeus Operator manages LINSTOR clusters in Kubernetes.

    Linstor using https://piraeus.io/

  • kbench

    Benchmark your Kubernetes storage.

    From your post history, it looks like you're using RPis, in which case the intrinsic latency of the USB controller is starting you off on the wrong foot. etcd doesn't like latency > 10ms. Have you tested your setup with kbench or something similar?
