Kubernetes and CockroachDB
As recently as December 2017, running databases in Kubernetes was challenging––especially for mission-critical online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads whose databases require strong consistency. A great way to simplify this process is by giving teams the option of using a cloud-native SQL database like CockroachDB within Kubernetes.
Leveraging Kubernetes and CockroachDB provides significant upsides including:
Radically simplifying your stack by removing duplicative technologies and enabling the use of the Kubernetes everywhere.
Improving the developers’ experience with a database that provides serializable consistency.
Easily scaling clusters to meet demand using CockroachDB’s built-in scaling abilities.
