Making an 'aaS' out of TiDB: building DBaaS on a Kubernetes Operator

Wednesday 5:10 PM - 5:35 PM

@ Big Bend AB

Open Source DatabasesTiDB

25 minutes conference


Cloud, MongoDB

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.
