Kubernetes 1.22: A New Design for Volume Populators
You could use the dataSource field when creating a new PVC, referencing either an existing PVC or a VolumeSnapshot in the same namespace. Volume populators embrace the same design idea, but extend it to any type of object, as long as there exists a custom resource to define the data source, and a populator controller to implement the logic.

Manage your Kubernetes clusters with Flux2
