Minikube supports PersistentVolumes of type
These PersistentVolumes are mapped to a directory inside the Minikube VM.
The Minikube VM boots into a tmpfs, so most directories will not be persisted across reboots (
However, Minikube is configured to persist files stored under the following directories in the Minikube VM:
Here is an example PersistentVolume config to persist data in the '/data' directory:
apiVersion: v1 kind: PersistentVolume metadata: name: pv0001 spec: accessModes: - ReadWriteOnce capacity: storage: 5Gi hostPath: path: /data/pv0001/
You can also achieve persistence by creating a PV in a mounted host folder.
