Kubernetes Operators


I’m sure if you are into Kubernetes/OCP you already played with those bundles of Go automation scripts called operators. If you haven’t that’s pretty cool stuff in the sense of automating the deployment, some operators cover the whole deployment life and as usual, if a pod or a resource is different than the spec, on the status, it will self adjust – for instance it will pop up another pod if the number of pods is different than the operator settings.

What is interesting about this, I would say for DevOps teams is the facility to deploy applications/start EAP/DG/SSO with the operators. As soon as you download one from OperatorHub in OCP for instance, and install in your respective project (given you have PVs) the deployment is complete seamlessly, only the namespace is will need to be known before hand.

Depending on the operator you can have more or less features, like seemly upgrade up to complete autopilot.
