Influxdb in kubernetes environment

Hi influxdb team,

I was reading on running influxdb as kubernetes pods and I came across this post. Kubernetes | InfluxData Platform Documentation

I was wondering why the document says “not for use in production” when it comes to running influxdb as kubernetes pods. Could you please shed some light on what motivated this suggestion, test cases and results, performance metrics data, if any?

Hello @priyamadhu,
I’m not sure. However, I highly recommend joining the InfluxData Slack and joining the kubernetes channel. Our community loves kubernetes so they’ll definitely be able to shed some light.
