Installing and managing an enterprise application like Gentics Mesh in a Kubernetes cluster can be a challenging task, as there are so many details to consider. We take the heavy lifting off your shoulders by providing you with a battle-tested Helm chart that takes care of all aspects of the application lifecycle management:
initialization of a new installation of Gentics Mesh
scaling a single node to a multi-master cluster
performing rolling upgrades
keeping the cluster up and running with liveness and readiness checks
running regular backups
exposing the Mesh API and the monitoring API as a service
configuring an ingress
specifying resource limits
All in all, that’s roughly 1000 lines of YAML that you don’t have to write and maintain!
The plugin requires Helm 3 and an up-to-date Kubernetes version.
