Let’s assume that we’d like to become the next big internet tycoon by offering an awesome, high end managed WordPress service to the world, including monitoring, completely dedicated database, backups, restores and the whole nine yards. In addition to our great idea, let’s also set some…less realistic goals:
– We need a Proof of Concept up and running in less than 30 minutes
– We need to reach our goal(s) without having to deep-dive into WordPress specifics
– A new dedicated wordpress site needs to be deployable with a single command or API call.
– Upon deployment, each WordPress website needs to be secured through HTTPS

This speech will give you an overview on how to start a project like this by leveraging the power of Kubernetes Operators running on the IONOS Cloud infrastructure.
