A couple of years ago, Docker advocates said containers focus on micro-services and cloud-native applications which are stateless – their data doesn’t persist after the container exits. Technologies like the container storage interface (CSI) have changed that view. In fact, more than half of the top 10 hub.docker.com images are databases and other persistent services.
In this presentation we will review basic containers, introduce Kubernetes concepts, and describe recent changes that make running databases on Kubernetes practical.
