Imagine a Vertica cluster running on any hardware or OS platform, scaling up and down seamlessly, and operating with zero-downtime. At GoodData, we decided to make this a reality by using the Kubernetes ecosystem. Because stateful clusters are not easily managed in Kubernetes, we implemented a custom operator with the operator SDK for Vertica running in Eon Mode. The Eon Mode implementation is running on MinIO storage, which is deployed in Kubernetes. This presentation describes our use case in detail, including the architecture and design of the solution, as well as a description of our deployment.
