Kubernetes Master Class: Managing SQL Servers with Kubernetes
Enterprises interested in modernizing SQL Server with Kubernetes are often challenged by dependencies on Active Directory and Windows Auth, storage networks, and other SQL Server infrastructure and security policies. The introduction of Windows Server for Kubernetes offers little to address these needs.
In this master class, you'll learn how to bring existing SQL Server databases into a Kubernetes managed workflow, with support for existing security systems, policies, and database storage. You’ll learn how database clones provide lightweight read/write environments, and support higher quality software releases.
For this class, we will discuss and demo:
- How to implement SQL Server containers with existing database storage, AD and Windows Auth, and security policies.
- How to implement SQL Server containers with secure production database clones, using existing SQL Server backups, or enterprise storage systems.
- How to implement SQL Server support with Rancher Labs
We will also discuss popular use-cases for SQL Server with Kubernetes.
