pods swichover to another AZ in EKS


Hi Folks, I have a need of switching over bunch of crtical production pods to another availability zone and they 're with EBS as storage volume. What are the sequence of steps should i plan for seamless switch over and back to normal. Thanks a lot

The procedure is the same as with normal EBS volumes. You need to create a snapshot, copy it to another region and create volume there. Once done, you can apply changes to your PV/PVC.

Here is an example of how to do it using CSI https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/containers/migrating-amazon-eks-clusters-from-gp2-to-gp3-ebs-volumes/
