Running Camunda BPM on Kubernetes Are you running Kubernetes now? Ready to move your Camunda BPM instances off of VMs, or just try it out on Kubernetes? We will address some common configurations and provide some building blocks you can tailor to your particular needs. Skill level: Intermediate You’ve used Kubernetes before. If not, why not try a tutorial and spin up your first cluster? Authors Alastair Firth is a Senior Site Reliability Engineer on the Camunda Cloud team.
In the last few years we’ve noticed many of our users are migrating from bare-metal infrastructures to cloud-based ones. While the cloud has overcome several limitations of the traditional infrastructure, other problems arise when deploying your microservices in environments that have the possibility to scale up and down dynamically based on workload. When deploying Camunda BPM, the first problem that you will encounter will be, most probably, session management.While this is easily solvable in traditional environments by using sticky sessions, the same solution does not apply when you deal with cloud environments like, Kubernetes.
