Databases on Kubernetes: Why you should care.

Session Description

Developers always expect databases to work out of the box, but historically that hasn’t been the case. Thanks to performance improvements made to Docker in the last few years and the rise of Kubernetes, running high-performance stateful applications inside containers is now a reality. A few questions have been raised to address this new normal: Why should I do that in the first place? How hard is it? What are the challenges? Is it production ready? These questions and more will be answered during a live demo that will deploy a database and operator, fail nodes, and scale up and down with almost no manual intervention using state-of-the-art technology.
