Right now, we do use HostPathes, which do not work in a real cluster environment (like AWS or GCE). Please adopt this one to your own needs.


  • Adopt persistence to be able to run this in the cloud as well as on single node "clusters"
  • Update to a later version of MariaDb
  • Use LDAP and SSO
