Review of the Percona Operator from a DBA prospective

Containers, kubernetes and virtualizations are, as never before, the shining objects of our times. While we are used to implementing them in case of stateless situations, it becomes more difficult to see them serve properly in case of stateful solutions like RDBMS. But after I have won some personal reluctance, I started to experiment with the Percona Operator for MySQL. With this presentation, I will bring you a short journey as a result of my experience as DBA in the usage of the Percona Operator for MySQL. We will see from one side failures, misunderstanding and some frustration. From the other side a learning process that brings me to have better comprehension of the possible utilization and the best way to achieve it. Finally my personal considerations.
