Once, nobody ran a database on top of Kubernetes or OpenShift. Now everyone’s doing it, and you can too.
Josh Berkus walks you through deploying and managing two different databases so you can get a taste of cloud native database hosting. You’ll learn the fundamentals of running databases in a cloud native environment regardless of your database platform and some tools to use directly with your chosen databases. Josh explores the basics of hosting databases in the container cloud (when to do it, when not to, how
storage works, and the effects on performance) and leads you step by step through setting up and administering two different database platforms on Kubernetes. You’ll first deploy PostgreSQL using operators as an example of how the cloud can enable a legacy database system, then a newer distributed database created for the cloud, Etcd.
Josh Berkus is a Kubernetes community manager at Red Hat, where he works with the Kubernetes community to automate all the things, including databases. He has contributed to PostgreSQL, Docker, OpenOffice, and many other projects. In his free time, he makes pottery and metalwork. Josh first spoke at OSCON in 2004.
