    Clearly, the [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] tool is very useful when you have multiple services and each service is connecting with other services through APIs in different networks. To manage this type of complex network, [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] is very useful. It comes with a license that can increase the billing of your project so make sure if your application network mesh, monitoring cannot be managed on your own then you can use it. If your application is not very complex then you have many tools available like Grafana, Prometheus, Sumo Logic, which you can integrate individually with your cluster and implement. In this type of scenario, it is better to not use [IBM Cloud Managed Istio] and it will serve your purpose as well.

    Percona

    Production ready, robust DB solution built for Kubernetes envs, we was able, for the first time, to ship production db workloads inside k8s. Be sure to check differences with "traditional" MySQL and other clustering solutions. Also be sure to match it with proper k8s storage solutions.

    Percona

    • Some differences compared to "traditional" MySQL solution.
    • Had some hard times trying to use it combined with pre-existing techs like WordPress, Magento, etc.
    • The specific k8s environment features can have an impact on it, like the storage solutions offered by the cloud vendor.

        Percona

        For a long time we struggled finding a viable solution to migrate our existing db workloads inside Kubernetes. Before "operators era" proper db workloads required manual management, of course that easily raised administrative overhead. Then the future started to be brighter with the introduction of operators and the "official" Oracle's MySQL Operator, then Presslab's one, finally Percona's operator. Compared to other operators, the last one allowed us to ship production db workloads inside k8s.

        Return on Investment

        IBM

        • It reduced the complexity of network mesh (ingress/egress services).
        • One tool with many solutions. No need to integrate monitoring tools or notification tools.
        • It reduced the number of lines of YAML code.
        • It reduced the number of labor hours.

        Percona

        • It allowed us to use k8s on our entire infrastructure.
        • Decreased administrative overhead around our db services.
        • As it is an open source technology, it cut down our db pricings.
