  1. Challenge

    Create a PersistentVolume That Allows Claim Expansion

    Create a hostPath PersistentVolume with a size of 1Gi that stores data on the host at /var/output. Ensure that this PersistentVolume is configured so that Pod volumes that use it can be expanded later. In addition, configure the volume so that it will be automatically reusable if the claims using it are deleted.

    Note that you may need to create other objects in addition to the PersistentVolume object.

  2. Challenge

    Create a PersistentVolumeClaim

    Create a PersistentVolumeClaim with a size of 100Mi. Make sure it is able to bind to the PersistentVolume.

  3. Challenge

    Create a Pod That Uses a PersistentVolume for Storage

    Create a Pod that uses the PersistentVolume and writes some data to it.
