Kubernetes is now the de-facto platform to deploy and manage stateless applications. It is also making strides for deploying and managing stateful applications. Managing stateful applications is more than provisioning and relocating containers upon failures. Stateful applications deal with data gravity, IP persistence, and almost always mandate procedures to protect data. Traditional methods for protecting data are application-level snapshots or storage snapshots provided by vendors. This method does not suffice for the applications running on Kubernetes. This presentation will shed light on some of the challenges and provide some approaches toward complete data protection for applications such as Oracle RAC, Postgres, Cassandra, MongoDB, etc.
