Data on Kubernetes Operator Maturity- Melissa Logan, Michelle Au, Robert Hodges & Gabriele Bartolini – KubeCon | CloudNativeCon North America 2023

Whether or not to run data workloads on Kubernetes is no longer the question. Now practitioners want to know best practices for Day 2 operations using Kubernetes Operators for full lifecycle management, deep insights, and autopilot.

Security is also tantamount, but not every operator comes with a security hardening guide. For those evaluating their options, the challenge is further complicated by choice; the number of operators continues to grow with Operator Hub currently listing 270+. In the absence of operator standards, how can end users possibly evaluate each one to know whether it meets their needs?

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.
