Hey there! I'm doing some research on deploying a small airbyte setup (just a few GB database sources). Our normal setup is k8s, but given that the aibyte's k8s-deployment is still in beta, there are some known_issues, and how easy it is to
docker-compose up
on a VM, I'm leaning towards just using
. The biggest advantage of the k8s deployment is the scalability, which in our setup is most likely not needed. So I'm wondering how stable the k8s beta deployment is? When is the beta
moving to

We are evaluating Airbyte, and all our stack is mainly in k8s already (Airflow, Seldon and etc), so our preference would be to push to k8s, using a published helm chart. Just as @Stefan Otte here, I would like to know more about the whole roadmap to make the deployments to k8s a bit more smoothly. Thanks!

Hi @Stefan Otte, if you have already applications running on K8S I'll suggest you to give a try to our K8S deployment. In case you'll face any issue we'll be happy to help you. You can give a try to the helm chart on our repo or kustomize. Airbyte configurations can be exported so in case you want to fallback to a
you won't need to go through manual config again. Moreover you'll find plenty of user on this slack to give you feedback around K8S, and if you have any specific question we're here for help.
The definition of "how stable" might depends of your needs, if you have a more precise request feel free to check ongoing issues on our github repo or ask us 😄
If your rather interested in doing a quick airbyte evaluation @Harshith (Airbyte) worked on a 1 click deployment on digital ocean that you could try out.

Thanks for your responses. We'll evaluate our options. I still lean towards
and as "Airbyte configurations can be exported" the upgrade path to k8s is also there.
