Couchbase on OpenShift and Kubernetes

Jetstack are pleased to open source a proof-of-concept sidecar for deployment of managed Couchbase clusters on OpenShift. The project is the product of a close engineering collaboration with Couchbase, Red Hat and Amadeus, and a demo was presented at the recent Red Hat Summit in Boston, MA.

This project provides a sidecar container that can be used alongside official Couchbase images to provide a scalable and flexible Couchbase deployment for OpenShift and Kubernetes. The sidecars manage cluster lifecycle, including registering new nodes into the Couchbase cluster, automatically triggering cluster rebalances, and handling migration of data given a scale-down or node failure event.
