We want to migrate some applications to google kubernetes. One of these applications is strictly bound to a folder, from which it reads files, which are exported from a third-party application. My dewy-eyed idea from an easy windows-mount or similar was destroyed at a great pace. My second idea with a google bucket, rclone and fuse is "okay" but not optimal for lots of small files.
We have a VPN in kubernetes, with which we are able to connect to our widows-servers.
So my question is:
- what is the best option to read files from a windows host out of a pod?
- what is the best option to copy files from our legacy windows hosts to a storage, which can be mounted to a pod?
