MySQL Operator

The MySQL Operator creates, configures and manages MySQL InnoDB clusters running on Kubernetes. It is not for MySQL NDB Cluster.

issues tags wercker status Go Report Card

The MySQL Operator is opinionated about the way in which clusters are configured. We build upon InnoDB cluster and Group Replication to provide a complete high availability solution for MySQL running on Kubernetes.

While fully usable, this is currently alpha software and should be treated as such. You are responsible for your data and the operation of your database clusters. There may be backwards incompatible changes up until the first major release.

Getting started

See the tutorial which provides a quick-start guide for users of the Oracle MySQL Operator.


The MySQL Operator provides the following core features:

  • Create and delete highly available MySQL InnoDB clusters in Kubernetes with minimal effort
  • Automate database backups, failure detection, and recovery
  • Schedule automated backups as part of a cluster definition
  • Create "on-demand" backups.
  • Use backups to restore a database


  • Kubernetes 1.8.0 +
