Looking back at the pitfalls of running databases on Kubernetes I encountered several years ago, most of them have been resolved.
All of these problems are hard and require technical finesse and careful thinking. Without choosing the right pieces, we’ll end up resigning both databases and Kubernetes to niche roles in our infrastructure, as well as the innovative engineers who have invested so much effort in building out all of these pieces and runbooks.Christopher Bradford

In this article, we’ll show you exactly how easy it is to use Astra with Kubernetes, and make you wonder why anyone would do anything else.Christopher Bradford
