Orchestration systems automate the deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Combined with CockroachDB's automated sharding and fault tolerance, they have the potential to lower operator overhead to almost nothing.
Use the following guides to run CockroachDB with popular open-source orchestration systems:
- Kubernetes Single-Cluster Deployment
- Kubernetes Multi-Cluster Deployment
- Kubernetes Performance Optimization
- Docker Swarm Deployment
To deploy a free CockroachCloud cluster instead of running CockroachDB yourself, see the Quickstart.
