Available for Dell’s entire storage portfolio, our Container Storage Interface (CSI) drivers expose block, file and unstructured storage systems to containerized workloads on Container Orchestration Systems (COs) like Kubernetes.


CSM and CSI are open-source projects from Dell Technologies that take advantage of the extensibility of Kubernetes to allow developers, site reliability engineers, storage engineers and DevOps teams to run cloud native stateful applications more efficiently. CSMs have been implemented to communicate with Dell's industry leading storage products through our CSI drivers. We welcome contributions to the projects to continue to support a healthy and vibrant Kubernetes community.
