Data on Kubernetes Community (DOKC)… ever heard of it?

It’s understood that Kubernetes isn’t the best when it comes to managing stateful applications, like email or online banking. These types of applications rely on previous transactions for whatever current transaction you’re trying to make.

That is where the DOKC comes into play. They’re trying to create standardized best practices for using Kubernetes, stateful apps, and persistent data together. You can learn more about them here.

How big of an impact do you think this will have on Kubernetes and the people/orgs that use them? Have you had issues trying to run stateful apps on Kubernetes? Is this something you’ve been waiting for?

Personally, I expect this to be very helpful. I would love to hear y’alls thoughts though, comment below!
