NuoDB, the distributed SQL database company, has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification and NuoDB Operator is available on Red Hat OpenShift.
The NuoDB Operator will also be available at OperatorHub.io, a community Operator registry launched by Red Hat in early 2019 in conjunction with AWS, Microsoft, and Google Cloud.
OperatorHub.io will pull the NuoDB Operator image from the Red Hat Container Catalog, a container ecosystem that is designed to deliver certified, trusted, and secure application containers to end users.
Now, Red Hat OpenShift customers can search and select NuoDB using the preferred service catalog approach when deploying Kubernetes-based applications.
An extension of an existing collaboration with Red Hat, the announcement underscores NuoDB’s commitment to making it easy for customers to modernize or build next-generation applications.
The newly available NuoDB Operator easily configures and deploys the NuoDB Community Edition (CE), allowing users to build, run and manage a NuoDB database natively inside Red Hat OpenShift.
Users also have the option to deploy the database with a sample SQL application that generates SQL activity on the database, allowing them to more quickly experience NuoDB in action.
Users can then enable NuoDB Insights, a graphical dashboard that provides insight into the performance and overall health of the database, to learn how the sample database performed.
Armed with this information, users can better understand, optimize and troubleshoot the database, making it easier to effectively evaluate NuoDB in Red Hat OpenShift.
“Kubernetes Operators are appealing because they help encode the human operational logic normally required to manage services running of a Kubernetes-native application and aim to make day-to-day operations easier,” said Julio Tapia, director, Cloud Platforms Partners Ecosystem, Red Hat. “By providing Operators on Red Hat OpenShift, users can begin experiencing the next level of benefits from a Kubernetes-native infrastructure, with services designed to ‘just work’ across any cloud where Kubernetes runs.”
In the future, NuoDB plans to further advance the NuoDB Operator container-native functionality by supporting operational use cases including backup and recovery, rolling upgrades and database partitioning.
NuoDB also plans to extend container-native support of Kubernetes by supporting popular Kubernetes managed services such as Google GKE, Amazon EKS, and Azure AKS and publishing to their respective marketplace offerings.
