Best practices: running high-performance databases on Kubernetes

  • Wallie Leung, Director of Systems Engineering at Diamanti
Session Abstract

Databases benefit greatly from containerization in terms of performance, ease-of-deployment, and scalability. However, building a database-as-a-service (DBaaS) on Kubernetes without the right infrastructure can be a complex, time-consuming project where some database services have to be run outside of the cluster for the sake of leveraging persistent storage. This session offers up a global financial institution’s real-world account of how bare metal Kubernetes infrastructure can further enhance the performance of MariaDB’s innovative, load-balanced database services – and how the requisite persistent storage can be best provisioned, managed and backed up without service interruption or creating an additional burden for application owners and developers.
