Stateful Applications in Kubernetes: Ready for Production!

This presentation addresses the widespread misconception that Kubernetes isn’t ready for stateful applications. Historically, Kubernetes storage arrived late and stateful workloads were missing the equivalent platform primitives that enabled ease-of-use and flexibility with stateless applications. Not only has this been addressed, but we will show how Kubernetes can become the preferred platform for stateful applications because of its developer-first approach.

Readers will walk away with a clear idea of:
* Support at every layer for building stateful cloud-native applications including the Container Storage Interface (CSI) and concepts such as StatefulSets
* How developers can effectively leverage Helm charts and use CRDs+Operators to manage applications at scale
* Knowledge of upcoming functionality (eg, LocalStorage) and how next-gen data stores (eg, CockroachDB) fit into cloud-native environments
