Abstract

DBaaS and other similar products sit at the centre of a flow of risk delegation from end users at the top, all the way down to hardware manufacturers at the bottom. 

I’m going to tell the story of how our system developed, both the product and the implementation, in terms of the decisions we made about how to manage risk: the risks we accepted from our customers, the risks we delegated to IaaS and other providers and those that we decided to keep for ourselves. 

In particular I'll talk about our use of Kubernetes as a foundation for our stateful service: why we chose it and how we handled the risks associated with that choice.
