Database Patterns with Azure Kubernetes Service Part 1: MySQL + Azure Managed Disk

One of the non-straight forward aspects of implementing for applications in Kubernetes is the stateful data store. I will be showing 2 relational database patterns in Azure Kubernetes Service. Since containers are the fundamental building blocks, these are stateless by default. That is the containers can lose its data when it is terminated or fail. …
