Percona announced the release of Percona Kubernetes Operator for XtraDB Cluster and Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB. Kubernetes delivers a method to orchestrate containers, providing automated deployment, management, and scalability.
In today’s cloud-native world, the ability to easily and efficiently deploy new environments or scale existing environments is key to ongoing growth and development. With Kubernetes Operators, you can launch a new environment with no single point of failure in under 10 minutes. As needs change, Kubernetes Operators can reliably orchestrate scaling the environment to meet current requirements, adding or removing nodes quickly and efficiently. Kubernetes Operators also provide for self-healing of a failed node in a cluster environment.
One of the best features of the Percona Kubernetes Operators is that they provide a deployment configuration while meeting Percona best practices. When the Operator is used to create a new XtraDB or Percona Server for MongoDB node, you can rest assured that the new node will use the same configuration as other nodes created with that same Operator. This ensures consistent results and reliability.
The consistency and ease of deployment enable your developers to focus on writing code while your operations team focuses on building pipelines. The Operator takes care of the tedious tasks of deploying and maintaining your databases following Percona’s best practices for performance, reliability, and scalability.
Percona Kubernetes Operator for XtraDB Cluster
The Percona Kubernetes Operator for XtraDB Cluster provides a way to deploy, manage, or scale an XtraDB Cluster environment. Based on our best practices, this Operator delivers a solid and secure cluster environment that can be used for development, testing, or production.
Percona XtraDB Cluster includes ProxySQL for load balancing and Percona XtraBackup for MySQL to easily backup your database environment. The Operator adds Percona Monitoring and Management to provide you with deep visibility into the performance and usage of your cluster.
Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB
The Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB enables you to deploy, manage, and scale a Percona Server for MongoDB replica set. With the Operator, you are ensured of an environment that does not have a single point of failure and adheres to Percona’s best practices for use of Percona Server for MongoDB. New Percona Server for MongoDB nodes can be added as either data storage nodes or as arbiter nodes.
The Percona Kubernetes Operator for Percona Server for MongoDB also includes Percona Monitoring and Management so that you can easily view and analyze activity on your replica set. It also includes Percona Backup for MongoDB, providing both scheduled and on-demand backups of your replica set.
Percona Kubernetes Operators deliver a proven method to provide a reliable and secure environment for your users, whether they are developers, testers, or end users. With these Operators, you are assured of consistent results and properly managed environments, freeing you up to focus on other tasks.
