How to Run CockroachDB on Kubernetes

In this video a former Kubernetes developer explains how to run CockroachDB on Kubernetes. Alex Robinson, the host of this demo, is a developer on CockroachDB and was a developer on Kubernetes at Google. You've probably heard that you should never run a database on Kubernetes. One of the primary complaints was that Kubernetes could not handle persistent state. It was impossible to run a stateful application on Kubernetes. With the introduction of Stateful Sets, running a stateful application (aka your database) possible. [Note] This video is from early 2017. Since this video was published, both Kubernetes and CockroachDB have grown considerably. No other database has proven to be as compatible with Kubernetes. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Careers: CockroachCloud: Blog: Docs: Community Slack: Twitter:
