As the adoption of Kubernetes has grown, so too has the need for the container platform to support complex stateful systems, such as databases. Kubernetes operators make it possible for IT teams to package, deploy, and manage data infrastructure with Kubernetes. Operators extend the functionality of Kubernetes, bringing automation to more complex applications. The MemSQL Kubernetes Operator allows developers to use an elastically-scalable, enterprise-class operational database alongside the rest of their containerized applications.
"Containers have fundamentally transformed how we deploy and manage stateless applications, and operators now unlock that same level of flexibility and scale to operational data infrastructure," said Nikita Shamgunov, CEO of MemSQL. "Becoming a Red Hat certified partner allows us to deliver our next generation, distributed relational database "as a service" across any public or private cloud."
“In working with MemSQL in the Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification we are thrilled that MemSQL Operator is available on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the most comprehensive Kubernetes platform,” said Julio Tapia, director, Cloud Platforms Partners Ecosystem, Red Hat. “Kubernetes Operators are appealing because they help encode the human operational logic normally required to manage services running on a Kubernetes-native application and aim to make day-to-day operations easier. By providing Operators on Red Hat OpenShift, users can begin experiencing the next level of benefits from a Kubernetes-native infrastructure, with services designed to ‘just work’ across any cloud where Kubernetes runs.”
The MemSQL Kubernetes Operator will allow customers to deploy and scale MemSQL clusters instantly. Customers will be able to define the cluster size, assign memory and CPUs, set a redundancy level, and choose a storage size.
