Overcoming Data-Tier Challenges on Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Deployments hosted by DataStax (Complimentary Registration Required)

Many teams building highly scalable, cloud-native applications, have struggled with finding a data solution that can keep pace with the needs of their application. Often this has meant a choice between using a managed database, or taking on the task of deploying and managing a database on Kubernetes. Apache Cassandra™ is a powerful database used in many applications that require resilience and scalability, but has traditionally been challenging to deploy and manage effectively. Now the Kubernetes and Cassandra communities have come together in a great collaboration called K8ssandra, a production-ready platform that makes it easy to run Cassandra™ on Kubernetes. In this workshop, you will learn the challenges of managing a data tier in Kubernetes and how to overcome them using K8ssandra.

With a primarily hands-on approach, we will cover introductory and in-depth topics that include:
  • Creating a K8ssandra release using Helm
  • Monitoring database performance through metrics and alerts
  • Breaking nodes in the database cluster on purpose to observe self-healing
  • Scaling the database resources up and down
  • Deploying applications on top of the database using CQL and REST APIs
  • Backing up and restoring data
  • Multi region deployment (time and resources permitting)
Attendance at this workshop is free. If you’d like to attend any other sessions that KubeCon has to offer, you will need to register for the conference here!

How to Register: Pre-registration is required. To register for Overcoming Data-Tier Challenges on Kubernetes and Cloud-Native Deployments, add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.
