Aerospike Kubernetes Operator

Run and manage Aerospike clusters in your cloud.

Unify your platform across multiple infrastructures

No need to worry about the operations of your Aerospike clusters

The Aerospike Kubernetes Operator lets you efficiently deploy and operate your Aerospike clusters. It automates the management of common tasks such as the configuration, provisioning, scaling, and recovery of Aerospike clusters, thereby reducing the complexity of manual deployment and lifecycle management.

Benefits

Benefits of the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator

FEATURES

Key features to make operating Aerospike easier

Scale and complexity are inherent with today’s applications. Running the Kubernetes Operator lets you keep up automated maintenance operations and upgrades – it’s built right in.

Cluster provisioning

The Operator takes care of provisioning nodes according to your exact requirements.

Multiple clusters and XDR

Deploy in a single Kubernetes namespace or in multiple Kubernetes namespaces.

Persistent storage volumes

Defined for each node in your cluster to allow pods to be recovered.

Backup and Auto-recovery

Detect node failures and use object store as a backup target.

Automatic scalability

Scale your cluster up or down by changing a single configuration parameter.

Rack awareness

Ensure loads are split evenly and nodes in the cluster are deployed equally.

Run and manage Aerospike clusters on Kubernetes

The Aerospike Kubernetes Operator unburdens organizations from the complexity of infrastructure operations and empowers them to manage Aerospike clusters and data with maximum flexibility.

HOW IT WORKS

High level architecture

With a custom controller written in Go, the Aerospike Kubernetes Operator allows administrators to manage the lifecycle and monitor the state of an Aerospike cluster.

Layered orchestration

A layered approach to orchestration allows the management of Aerospike cluster tasks outside of the Aerospike deployment.

Built for stateful applications

Using Kubernetes StatefulSets, it manages the deployment and scaling of a set of Pods where Aerospike resides.

Cloud-agnostic

Supports Kubernetes 1.16+, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), and Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
