The Evolution of Stateful Applications on Kubernetes

The Evolution of Stateful Applications on Kubernetes

In this edition of The New Stack Makers podcast, Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, discusses the concepts of big data, storage and stateful applications on Kubernetes. Guests Tom Phelan, fellow, big data and storage organization, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and Joel Baxter, distinguished engineer, HPE, draw from their deep experience managing stateful applications and data in containerized environments.

Kubernetes and containers are obviously much talked about in the IT world today, but how to manage the stateful applications and data that run on top of cloud native platforms is also — especially for operations — important. The process includes managing the data from legacy stateful applications as organizations make the shift to highly distributed containerized environments.

In this edition of  The New Stack Makers podcast,  Alex Williams, founder and publisher of The New Stack, discusses the concepts of big data, storage and stateful applications on Kubernetes. Guests  Tom Phelan, fellow, big data and storage organization,  Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) and  Joel Baxter, distinguished engineer, HPE, draw from their deep experience managing stateful applications and data in containerized environments. They also discuss KubeDirector, an open source platform for running non-cloud native stateful applications on Kubernetes.

One of the original problems Baxter sought was how to solve the problem of data access in multicluster environments. He explained that, at the time, a typical usage model might have involved pre-ingesting data before copying the data to a cluster environment for processing.

“There are a lot of downsides with that process since you’re adding requirements for more storage and you’re adding time to the whole process. But one nice thing about it is once you have your data in the cluster, you could just let whoever had access to that cluster have access to that data,” said Baxter. “It’s kind of a separate stage where you could have some administrative kind of person say, ‘okay, it’s fine for you to access this data now. So, here’s your copy.’”
