We recently announced the GridGain and Apache Ignite Operator for Kubernetes, which gives GridGain and Apache Ignite users a convenient way to deploy and manage their clusters. The automation provided by the solution simplifies cluster provisioning and minimizes the operational and management burden. In addition, our latest updates to the GridGain thin client and thick client deliver simplified and more capable connectivity options for Kubernetes. Taken together, these advances streamline deploying GridGain and Apache Ignite in cloud-native applications.
Accelerating Shift to Containerization
As users deploy more applications in containerized environments, DevOps teams are turning to technologies such as Kubernetes to manage their containerized applications and databases. To help Ignite users who build such cloud-native applications with Kubernetes, we are releasing the GridGain Operator for Kubernetes. With this operator, you can deploy and manage Apache Ignite and it’s components more easily by reducing the number of manual steps required to maintain the software in Kubernetes environments.
