Cloud distributed system has undergone substantial changes in the past few years, to aim for a more reliable and cost-effective operation. In this paper, we would be focusing on automation of distributed persistent storage system that is a major problem as we are shifting toward containerization. Various systems have been developed that support management of distributed storage. However, these systems fail to manage and are easily scalable in case of failure. In this paper, a smart distributed storage automation system (DSAS) has been proposed that is capable to perform healthy fault detection and fix in a distributed persistent storage system using Kubernetes architecture for distributed system and Ceph Architecture for managing distributed storage. We would be using their existing functionality and extend it using Kubernetes operator. Moreover, provides easy portability, self-reliability, self-scalability, and robustness.
