Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) - Shared Storage on Linux Containers

Brass Contributor



We are working with Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and need a shared storage that several Linux Containers can use. Using Azure Files gives us a shared storage with use of the SMB protocol. But our experience is that this is not optimized for Linux Containers. The "Azure Files" gives us a "windows filesystem" that our linux containers (running drupal) do not like to talk with - Character & directory mismatch.


Have we done anything wrong configuring this Shares Storage? How can we get a AKS Shared Storage that is optimized to use with linux containers. Currently we are looking on Amazon S3 to get this working, but having Azure AKS with Amazon S3 is not a good design.
