Automation for Redis with Kubernetes operators

By Alex Miłowski, Brad Barnes

Kubernetes is the defacto standard for container orchestration. While there are many recipes for deploying Redis on Kubernetes, operators are a new way to manage containerized deployments that extend Kubernetes to automate and manage software like Redis.

This talk covers why you should consider an operator for Redis, compares some of the choices for OSS Redis, and details the benefits and experience gained from developing the Redis Enterprise operator for Kubernetes. You’ll understand the role of operators in Kubernetes, what to look for in an operator, and how Redis has achieved these with their operator for Redis Enterprise.
