Top 5 Considerations for Running Stateful Apps on Kubernetes
Online Talk, April 2018
Co-Founder & CTO, YugaByte
Docker containers are great for running stateless applications, but what about stateful applications powered by databases? Kubernetes provides the StatefulSets controller for such applications. YugaByte DB is a transactional, planet-scale database built with a storage and replication architecture that leverages StatefulSets to the maximum. Users can finally gain all the benefits of a containerized infrastructure even for stateful applications.
In general, developers and operations engineers interested in leveraging Kubernetes for stateful apps have to consider the following:
Ensuring high performance with persistent volumes and pod anti-affinity rules.
Achieving data resilience with auto-failover and multi-zone pod scheduling.
Integrating StatefulSet services with other internal and external application services.
Running Day 2 operations such as monitoring, elastic scaling, capacity re-sizing, backups with ease.
Automating operations through Operators that extend the StatefulSets controller.
Karthik reviews each of the above topics in detail and demonstrates how to run a stateful E-Commerce application running on YugaByte DB, both deployed in Kubernetes.
