5 Min to complete

An introduction to the ScyllaDB Operator, what is it, how it’s used, and why we need it.
ScyllaDB Operator is an open-source project and you can find the code on GitHub. The operator in K8 is made up of a controller and a CRD. In our case, the controller is ScyllaDB Operator. The CRD is the ScyllaDB cluster. The controller gets the information from the CRD and is responsible for bringing up the cluster, setting up the networking, reporting on the status, and more.
The operator also creates a StatefulSet for each Rack.
