NoSQL database vendor Couchbase advanced its cloud-native database deployment efforts with the release of the Autonomous Operator for Kubernetes 2.0 update.
Kubernetes, an open source container orchestration system, is a foundational element of cloud-native environments. With cloud native, organizations can run the same software across multiple cloud providers, as well as on on-premises deployments, providing administrators with more opportunities to automate database management.
An Operator defines and enables a mechanism to package, deploy and manage an application in an autonomous approach. Many database vendors, including DataStax, NuoDB and CockroachDB, among others, have also embraced the Kubernetes Operator model.
