Kubernetes, and its most popular distribution OpenShift, receives a lot of interest as a container orchestration platform. However, databases remain a foreign entity, primarily because of their stateful nature.
In this presentation I discuss how to deploy Open Source databases (MySQL/Percona XtraDB Cluster and MongoDB) on Kubernetes/Openshift. For Percona XtraDB Cluster (PXC) we will be using MySQL Proxy to implement read/write splitting.
If you have never used Kubernetes and Openshift, I will do a quick introduction to these technologies. There will also be a demo where I will set up a PXC cluster with ProxySQL as well as MongoDB replicaset in Openshift Origin and will try to break it.
By the end of this webinar you will have a better understanding of:
* How to leverage Kubernetes/Openshift in your environments
* How to deploy opensource databases in Kubernetes/Openshift with StatefulSet.
* How to operate the databases in Kubernetes
