A Trident backend defines the relationship between Trident and a storage system. It tells Trident how to communicate with that storage system and how Trident should provision volumes from it.
Trident will automatically offer up storage pools from backends that together match the requirements defined by a storage class.
Choose the storage system type that you will be using as a backend, and create the backend using one of the options described here.
