The Kubernetes community has made significant progress when it comes to easily deploying stateful services like databases. But what happens on Day 2? Day 2 operations are all about managing an application when things go wrong: nodes fail, networks are partitioned, a CVE comes out requiring a new version of Kubernetes to be deployed and all running apps upgraded. This talk will provide a real-world view into the challenges of running stateful apps like databases in production and look at some solutions using Portworx PX-Enterprise.
In this session, Portworx VP of Product Marketing Michael Ferranti and Rancher Head of Product Management Ankur Agarwal discuss and demo:
- How to architect an application to take advantage of the self-healing provided by Kubernetes
- How to respond to common Day 2 operational scenarios like node failure, disk out of space, and restore from snapshots
- How to conduct a blue-green deployment of a new version of Kubernetes when you need to upgrade your cluster and keep your databases running
