Complex Stateful Applications Made Easier with Kubernetes

Wednesday 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

@ Hill Country A


50 minutes conference


MySQL, Kubernetes

MySQL is the world's most popular open source database and Kubernetes is the most popular and rapidly-developing project currently. The purpose of this talk is to explain and demonstrate how running a complex stateful application such as a database is made easier using Kubernetes and that there are a number of options available.

MySQL deployment patterns covered will start with explaining simply how to run MySQL with a simple command using a helm chart; onto how a MySQL asynchronous replicated master/slave MySQL pattern works on Kubernetes; onto how several different MySQL operators can be used giving a detailed discussion; and demonstration will showcase the Oracle MySQL Operator which uses group replication and the MySQL router, and makes creating MySQL clusters, backups, and restorations trivial.

Last to be covered will be Vitess which is used for horizontal scaling of MySQL which has numerous benefits such as built-in sharding and shard management, connection-pooling, query sanitization.
