ScyllaDB on Kubernetes: Introducing the ScyllaDB Operator

How can Kubernetes be best used to automate the deployment, scaling, and various operations of a ScyllaDB database? Enter Kubernetes Operators, the way to combine domain-specific knowledge about Scylla with the automation framework of Kubernetes. In this presentation, we will quickly explore what Kubernetes is and why it works so well, highlight the pain points of running ScyllaDB with just Kubernetes primitives, and show how we extended Kubernetes so that it can correctly operate a ScyllaDB database. Finally, we will show the Scylla Operator in action and show how easily you can spin up a ScyllaDB cluster with just one command.
