Yes, there's an example here of both an NFS client and server running within pods in the cluster: 


Configuring NFS Server

Define NFS server pod and NFS service:

$ kubectl create -f nfs-server-pod.yaml
$ kubectl create -f nfs-server-service.yaml

The server exports /mnt/data directory, which contains dummy index.html. Wait until the pod is running!

Configuring NFS Client

See WEB server pod, which runs a simple web server serving data from the NFS. 

The pod assumes your DNS is set up and the NFS service is reachable as nfs-server.default.kube.local

Edit the yaml file to supply another name or directly its IP address (use kubectl get services to get it).

Finally, define the pod:

$ kubectl create -f web-pod.yaml
Now the pod serves index.html from the NFS server:
$ curl http://<the container IP address>/

Do you know where the YAMLs files about the exemple above is ?
You have to configure those yaml files on the NFS server within the /volumes/nfs directory structure of your kubernetes cluster.

The storage method is at sky-high demand sprawling out far and wide among various verticals. Numerous applications are coming up for providing contented access to people.

One of the ways Kubernetes allow applications to access storage is the standard Network File Service (NFS) protocol. I found a article here which helped me setup nfs provisioner server in kubernetes.
