Running Stateful Applications in Containers with K8S Persistent Volumes and StatefulSets

Containers are great for stateless applications. They are proving to be more and more beneficial for stateful applications as the container technologies mature. In this talk, we will discuss data persistency in a containerized environment. We will take a deeper look at stateful applications and understand the challenges of deploying them. You will learn how you can leverage different Kubernetes features e.g. PersistentVolumes, PersistentVolumeClaims, StorageClasses, StatefulSets, Quotas etc, to deploy and manage stateful applications. The session includes a demo of scalebable on demand PostgreSQL deployment using Helm charts, StatefulSets and dynamic storage provisioning.
