Thanks to the Operator Pattern, Kubernetes is now an outstanding platform to run databases. But to quote Marathon Man, “Is it safe?” This talk is a top-level review of the database security problem in Kubernetes, standard ways that operators can mitigate threats, and a wallet-sized checklist of security features you should look for in any operator you use. Our talk is practical and focused on the needs of Kubernetes developers. Enjoy it now!
Panelists from the Data on Kubernetes Community Operator SIG and CNCF projects will discuss key features of Kubernetes database operators — what works, what doesn’t, and where the industry is going. Panelists will also present an overview of collaborative projects between the Dat on Kubernetes Operator SIG, CNCF Storage TAG, App SIG, Security SIG and others.
Did you know you can implement compute/storage separation with Amazon block storage? Or the NVMe SSD is not always the fastest or most flexible game in town? Perhaps you would like to extend volumes without downtime? What about changing storage parameters in ways that CSI drivers don’t support? (Hint: we built a controller for that.) Kubernetes storage features make it a portable and flexible foundation for data. This talk shares practical ways to exploit those features as you build your own data platforms.
