Historically speaking, convincing anyone to run data stores on k8s is a giant pain. This isn't helped by all the mythology around "k8s is great for stateless" further promoted by folks like Kelsey Hightower who firmly believes that one should rely on the cloud provider's data stores.

This is great for the cloud provider as those are high margin services, I for one would rather have a single orchestration API that I have to interact with, that being the one offered by k8s. All the benefits of running workloads in k8s apply equally to data stores. Cattle, not pets. If your data store needs coddling then it's a pet and you're doing it wrong.
