This talk covers some of the challenges we sought to address by creating a Kubernetes Operator for Percona XtraDB Cluster, as well as a look into the current state of the Operator, a brief demonstration of its capabilities, and a preview of the roadmap for the remainder of the year. Find out how you can deploy a 3-node PXC cluster in under 5 minutes and handle providing self-service databases on the cloud in a cloud-vendor agnostic way. You'll have the opportunity to ask the Product Manager questions and provide feedback on what challenges you'd like us to solve in the Kubernetes landscape.
