“The company had just gotten a new sense of needing physical security, so they had included a new, state-of-the-art security system,” says fish.
“It had electronic locks at a handful of doors in the building, a 10-foot-high fence with a motorized gate, and key-card reader stations by each of the locked doors and the gate.”

In this tutorial, we’ll discuss how to use the TiDB Operator, a new open-source project by PingCAP to leverage Kubernetes to deploy the entire TiDB Platform and all of its components. The TiDB Operator allows you to monitor a TiDB deployment in a Kubernetes cluster and provides a gateway to administrative duties.
