Migrating Databases in Kubernetes with LaunchDarkly

In this video, Peter from LaunchDarkly talks about how feature flags can be used to make backend changes to an application running in Kubernetes. LaunchDarkly supports both frontend and backend SDKs and in this demonstration, Peter uses the Javascript SDK to migrate a todo application database from Postgres to MongoDB Atlas. He covers additional capabilities such as user targeting, prerequisite flags, and progressive rollouts, all of which can be helpful when making a change to sensitive systems like databases. This video provides a high level overview of database migrations with flags, for a more in depth guide and recommendations for minimizing risk during the migration process, please consult this guide: #LaunchDarkly #MongoDBAtlas #FeatureManagement #FeatureFlags #Postgres #DevOps #AppDev #DatabaseMigration #BackendFlags #Kubernetes Subscribe to LaunchDarkly: Learn more about LaunchDarkly: Website: LinkedIn: Twitter: About LaunchDarkly: Feature management allows development teams to innovate faster by fundamentally transforming how software is delivered to customers.
