Building Stateful Workloads in Kubernetes

Level: All

It’s day 2. Kubernetes is running. You have your deployments and services set. Now how do you migrate the data store? Let’s journey together on this code-focused tour through Persistent Volumes, Persistent Volume Claims, and StatefulSets. We’ll craft and launch a strategy to care for your users’ data in this new container world. You can power your business on Kubernetes: stateless or stateful.

It’s (relatively) easy to build stateless web properties in containers, but it’s a much different beast to build data stores in Kubernetes. We’ll disambiguate PV, PVC, and Stateful Sets in simple ways so you can get past this next hurdle of K8s knowledge.
