How we built our managed service on Kubernetes

Running distributed databases on-prem or in the cloud is always a challenge. Over the past years, we have invested a lot to make cluster deployments as simple as possible, both on traditional (virtual) machines (using the ArangoDB Starter) as well as on modern orchestration systems such as Kubernetes (using Kube-ArangoDB).

However, as long as teams have to run databases themselves, the burden of deploying, securing, monitoring, maintaining & upgrading can only be reduced to a certain extent but not avoided.

For this reason, we built ArangoDB Oasis.

The ArangoDB Operator for Kubernetes – Stateful Cluster Deployments in 5min

At ArangoDB we’ve got many requests for running our database on Kubernetes. This makes complete sense since Kubernetes is a highly popular system for deploying, scaling and managing containerized applications.

Running any stateful application on Kubernetes is a bit more involved than running a stateless application, because of the storage requirements and potentially other requirements such as static network addresses. Running a database on Kubernetes combines all the challenges of running a stateful application, combined with a quest for optimal performance.

This article explains what is needed to run ArangoDB on Kubernetes and what we’re doing to make it a lot easier. Read more
