Camunda Cloud Operator
Christmas Hack Day Project (2021): Build an Kubernetes Operator to deploy Camunda Cloud services
Motiviation / Idea
We currently have open-source helm charts in order to deploy Camunda Cloud services, https://github.com/camunda-community-hub/camunda-cloud-helm. But to support further use cases, like deploying and maintaining lot of Zeebe clusters and doing this in a "simple" way (via CRD's) we need an Kubernetes Operator.
Of course part of the motiviation is to get the hands dirty and build up more knowledge about kubernetes and kubernetes operators.
So the idea is to build an open-source Camunda Cloud operator, which can be used and extended by the community to deploy and run Camunda Cloud services, like Zeebe, Operate, Tasklist, Optimize etc. For each service we want to build/add an extra controller and CRD which is bundled in the operator.
Goals for the Christmas Hackdays 2021
The goals for the Christmas Hackdays are simple: get something "useful" running. Ideally at the end of the day we are able to deploy a Zeebe Cluster with a new CRD.
Possible CRD (example):
zeebe: cluster: size: 3 replicationFactor: 3 partition: 3 envs: - key: value resources: memory: limit: request: cpu: limit: request: gateway: embedded: false envs: - key: value resources: #optional memory: limit: request: cpu: limit: request:
In the future we extend the operator with different controllers/crd's for each service.
