KubeDB by AppsCode simplifies and automates routine database tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair for various popular databases on private and public clouds
KubeDB simplifies many of the difficult or tedious management tasks of running a production grade databases on private and public clouds. Maintain one stack for all your stateless and stateful applications and simplify the operational complexity.
Standard Kubernetes is all you need. If you can run Kubernetes, you can provision and manage databases using KubeDB. Use standard Kubernetes CLI and API to provision and manage databases.
KubeDB uses Persistent Volume Claims (PVC) to dynamically provision disks for database instances. Using appropriately defined StorageClasses, KubeDB provisioned database instances are designed to scale from small development workloads up to performance-intensive workloads on private and public cloud environments.
KubeDB will backup your database and transaction logs at a user defined frequency and store both for a user-specified retention period in a cloud object store (S3, GCS, etc.) or local filesystem (like NFS, etc.). You can also initiate one-off backups. KubeDB uses Stash by AppsCode to take deduplicated and encrypted backups so that you only incur the cost of incremental storage use. You can create a new instance from a database snapshots whenever you desire.
KubeDB allows you to use encrypted storage for your databases using keys you manage through your cloud provider’s key management service. A database instance running on AWS can keep its data stored at rest in the underlying storage encrypted, as are its automated backups, read replicas, and snapshots.
KubeDB comes with native support for monitoring via Prometheus. You can use builtin Prometheus scrapper or CoreOS Prometheus Operator to monitor KubeDB supported databases as well as KubeDB operator itself. You can use the Grafana to view key operational metrics, including compute/memory/storage capacity utilization, I/O activity, and instance connections. You can also use any metrics solutions like Datadog with KubeDB.
KubeDB is free to use on any supported Kubernetes engines. There is no up-front investment required, and you pay only for the resources you use to your infrastructure provider. And, when you’re finished with a database instance, you can easily delete it.
KubeDB is an open core project. KubeDB Community edition is open source and free to use for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. It comes with the cluster provisioning functionalities. KubeDB Enterprise edition includes the features of the Community Edition and extends it by automating Day 2 operations like database backup/recovery, upgrading version, horizontal and vertical scaling, TLS/SSL support via cert-manager, connection pooling, etc.
InterSystems was delighted to engage with AppsCode in the delicate, yet fundamental task of supporting durable, non-ephemeral workloads with Kubernetes. We needed the best-prepared, most-proficient database operator consulting in the industry. Given AppsCode's pedigree of database building operators, the decision was easy. No time was wasted and all objectives reached in an amazingly short period of time. I would recommend AppsCode consulting for any Kubernetes related work.

Voyager made it simple and efficient for us to protect and initiate our bare metal Kubernetes workload. Its underlying technology and extensive L4 support along with seamless SSL integration is what made us choose Voyager over others. Voyager team is also very responsive when it comes to support. Great product!

Voyager is the easiest way to use the fast and reliable HAProxy as our ingress controller. At PriceHubble, it is the corner-stone of our blue/green deployments.

I work with a few Kubernetes clusters and we use Voyager as our preferred ingress controller. We really like the ease of configuration. Documentation is pretty good. Also the use of HaProxy is important for us because it works really well with both L4 and L7 load balancing. One of our TCP services, Wayk Now, is able to withstand thousands of persistent connections very smoothly at the same time.

We really like using Voyager. Its straightforward and well-documented config and SSL (especially Let's Encrypt) has made our migration of services to Kubernetes a breeze. Each major version has been a very welcome update!
