Sidecar containers run alongside the main container to provide additional services such as service mesh or SQL proxies.

We make us of a sidecar in Google Cloud SQL (c.f. GKE QuickStart) where the proxy connects to the PostgreSQL database and the app connects to the proxy container running in the pod.

Configuring sidecar containers

All of the apps within QuickCase can accept a sidecar container. To configure your sidecar follow this pattern:

# Replace ${app} with the QuickCase app name
- name: my-sidecar
image: sidecar:latest
# etc
