Databases and Data Analytics on Red Hat OpenShift

Run databases and data analytics in a consistent way across clouds to accelerate delivery of cloud-native applications

Databases and data analytics provide methods for ingesting, storing, processing, and analyzing datasets from a variety of sources for use cases such as, mobile and ecommerce applications, AI/ML, business intelligence, and more.

 


 

Why deploy databases and data analytics workloads on containers & Kubernetes?

Agility

Deploy and manage modularized databases and data analytics workloads anywhere with speed, allowing faster project execution and more frequent updates.

Elastic Scaling 

Dynamic scaling of compute resources to meet the changing needs of databases and data analytics workloads.

Portability 

Containerize once, deploy and move anywhere.

 


 

Potential executional challenges for databases and data analytics workloads on containers and Kubernetes

Downtime and data loss

Failures, outages, data corruption


Operational complexity

Architecture and operations (e.g. containers, storage, networking, data protection), performance tradeoff


Lack of ISV support

ISV endorsement or support documentation


Lack of expertise

Gaps in skills and processes

 

 

Benefits of deploying databases and data analytics on Red Hat OpenShift

 

Automated operations 

Kubernetes Operators simplify and automate the deployment, scaling, and lifecycle management of containerized databases and data analytics on Red Hat OpenShift. This helps enable DevOps, and allows Database Administrators (DBAs) to focus on more strategic tasks such as controlling user access and security.

 

Consistency and portability

Secure deployment, operations, and portability in a consistent way across the hybrid cloud. Run containerized databases and data analytics in the same manner as the other components of the cloud-native application(s).
