MySQL on Kubernetes

MySQL on Kubernetes

In this episode, Ryan and Bhavin interview Andrew Sillifant, a solution architect at Pure Storage working on all things databases and solutions. The discussion starts by talking about Andrew's early days with the LAMP stack, and how he sees the community evolve around containers and Kubernetes. We dive into the MySQL Operator and how it helps Kubernetes operators or developers deploy MySQL InnoDB clusters using simple YAML files. We talk about the benefits and challenges associated with running MySQL on Kubernetes and talk about the different ways users can protect their MySQL databases.
