Mar 17, 2022
How do you add persistent storage to your Kubernetes application? Last week, guest Rick Osowski taught our host Whitney Lee how to deploy a stateless application on Kubernetes. Now Rick is back to teach us how to add persistent storage to our application. Come join the conversation!
Rick Osowski is a Principal Engineer at Seagate Technology, pulling from over 18 years in the IT industry, with experience ranging from Development to QA to Technical Sales to Product Management to Solution Architecture. His current focus is on the adoption of Kubernetes and Containers throughout the open-source object storage project, CORTX.
Formerly, Rick was a Senior Solution Architect for IBM Cloud and led the Event-Driven Architecture domain with a focus on Apache Kafka-based reference architectures.
Rick lives in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois with his wife and daughter. He is a passionate mental health advocate, podcast host, and non-profit supporter.
Whitney traveled the scenic route but is chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. Whitney began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. After a year-long tour playing keys in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school in 2019 to learn full-stack web development. After graduation, Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned. She developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. Whitney has made many cloud-related lightboard videos that together have 400,000+ views. At VMware, you can find Whitney writing lighthearted yet informative guides, or behind the lightboard during her weekly streaming show ϟ Enlightning. Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to collaborate and play!
