azure – Sitecore 10 AKS Development Instance – SQL Persistence

I have followed Barts’ excellent tutorial to get a development instance of Sitecore 10.2 up and running on AKS.

There is one flaw though, when the windows AKS node gets restarted (patching etc) the SQL database gets wiped entirely. Sure, a dev environment should be ephemeral, but I want the DB to persist beyond a machine restart. I was looking to add persistence with a volume mount for the data folder from below image, is that possible? If so what is the folder mount path?


The alternative is to use the below Microsoft image on a Linux node (Microsoft don’t support a Windows SQL Image), or PaaS Azure SQL – I am shying away from those from a cost perspective for a dev instance, although the linux node is probably palatable.
