Although I wanted to use RethinkDB for new stuff I was very hesitant to introduce a probably discontinued product. Using a Linux product with Apache 2 instead makes the decision to introduce RethinkDB much easier.
Is somebody already working on a operator for kubernetes like coreos did for etcd ? What is your recommended kubernetes deployment for RethinkDB?
I use RethinkDB with Kubernetes in production using the above project and have been very happy.
Ross, the project creator, is also a RethinkDB leadership member and is stellar at responding to any questions concerning the project.
