#13 DoK community: Distributed Workloads on Kubernetes Operators to the Rescue // Sebastien Guilloux
Manage episode 283453639 series 2865115
For our 13th installation of the data on k8s meetup, we will be talking with Senior Software Engineer Sebastien Guilloux from Elastic about Distributed workloads on k8s and how operators play a part in that!
How easily can you run distributed workloads on Kubernetes? The initial deployment of your 10-nodes database might be easy to setup, but day-2 operations (changing the configuration, adding and removing nodes, version upgrades, etc.) are much more complicated.
We'll discuss how operators can help you manage distributed workloads, and a few operator tricks we learned while working on ECK (Elastic Cloud on Kubernetes) - an operator for the Elastic stack.
