TiDB has bet big on Kubernetes; it is our compatibility layer to operate on any cloud platform and deploy with a single command. This talk explains from experience the challenges of automating a distributed database on Kubernetes with TiDB-Operator. Then we will show how to architect a DBaaS (Database as a Service) to work on top of an operator.
The talk will include a short demo showing how a DBaaS can bring together open source tooling (Prometheus, Netdata, TiDB, Loki, Grafana, Sentry) to monitor and troubleshoot database performance.
