stateless applications are confusing me a bit. I thought stateless applications only provide static websites or simple sites without databases and PV.
After i read the kubernetes articel about the stateless App with frontendpods and 1 redis db pod for storing the guestbook entries([Example: Deploying PHP Guestbook application with Redis - Kubernetes], im pretty confused now. can someone explain me why there is a db in a stateless App, actualy every frontendpod have to get updated after a post ? for me, there is not a clear cut between stateless and stateful…
I would be glad about a link to this topic too :).
thank you so much. Jack
