The Data on Kubernetes 2021 Report found that 90% of surveyed companies believe Kubernetes is ready for stateful workloads with a large majority (70%) running them in production. The recently launched DoK Landscape documents existing products, solutions, and consultancies that enable data on Kubernetes including database, storage, data manager software, and operators themselves.

DoK Day is taking place Monday, October 24, 2022 from 9:00AM – 5:00PM EDT at the DoubleTree Hotel located at 525 W Lafayette Blvd. in Detroit. Both virtual and in-person attendance to DoK Day is available through the in-person KubeCon registration.

About Data on Kubernetes Community (DoKC)

Kubernetes was initially designed to run stateless workloads. Today it is increasingly being used to run databases and other stateful workloads. The Data on Kubernetes Community was founded in June 2020 to bring practitioners together to solve the challenges of working with data on Kubernetes. An openly governed community hosted by, DoKC exists to assist in the emergence and development of techniques for the use of Kubernetes for data.
