Limitations with current database operators in Kubernetes: StatefulSet (Part 3).
The StatefulSet is a useful API to define applications with state. However, it falls short to encode all the database complexities effectively. In this blog we explain what those limitations are and what the future of databases on Kubernetes looks like.
Limitations with current database operators in Kubernetes: Consistency (Part 2).
Despite the many database operators available for Kubernetes, the lack of consistent interfaces and best practices poses a challenge to organizations that need knowledgeable DevOps teams to deploy each database.
