Announcing a FoundationDB Kubernetes Operator

The FoundationDB SRE team at Apple has been working this year to develop an operator for running FoundationDB on Kubernetes, and I’m happy to say that we’re now open sourcing that operator. I think this will provide a really smooth way for people to get FoundationDB up and running, while providing the strong guarantees of safety that people expect from FoundationDB. This project is still in its early phases, but we plan on making it production-ready over the next year. I’m really excited to see the contributions and feedback from the community in this area. I’ll admit that our team doesn’t have as deep of experience with Kubernetes as other folks in the community have, and I believe that by bringing everyone’s experience to bear we can create a much stronger operational story for everyone.

I’d love for you all to check out the operator on GitHub:
