Please join Percona’s Chief Technology Officer, Vadim Tkachenko as he presents “Running MySQL in Kubernetes" on Thursday, September 6th, 2018, at 11:00 AM PDT (UTC-7) / 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4).

Without question, Kubernetes is the most popular container orchestration platform. But can it handle databases? I think so, and in this webinar, I will show how it does it. This talk presents a quick overview of the persistent storage options (the most critical part of data storage) and then what it takes to run highly available MySQL deployments with backup and recovery options.

By the end of the webinar, you will understand if Kubertenes is suitable for handling your databases, and how to approach using it if it is.
