Minecraft runs in a multi-client, single-server architecture. State and configuration are stored on disk. Minecraft servers are network sensitive, CPU and memory intensive, and can only operate as a single instance. It's a great example of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) software. In this talk we'll take a look at some of the key capabilities in Kubernetes we can leverage to run a high-performance, reliable, and disaster-proof Minecraft server, which you can apply to many other stateful applications your team has to manage. Or just use these techniques to run your own Minecraft server! By the end of this talk you'll understand how to configure high performance storage, manage on-disk configuration, run custom Pod initializations, back-up your state on a regular basis, expose custom service endpoints, and more. We'll take advantage of the flexibility of Kubernetes to increase reliability of software developed by others, not initially meant for a container runtime.
