London In-Memory Computing Meetup
GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri will be one of the featured speakers at the London In-Memory Computing Meetup on April 10. His talk will detail how Kubernetes can orchestrate a distributed database like Apache Ignite.
The title of his presentation is: "Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!"
Abstract: Distributed databases can make so many things easier for a developer, but not always for DevOps. Kubernetes has come to the rescue with an easy application orchestration!
It is straightforward to do the orchestration leaning on relational databases as a data layer. However, it is more difficult to do the same when a distributed SQL database or other kind of distributed storage is used instead.
Attendees will learn about:
* Cluster Assembling - database nodes auto-discovery in Kubernetes.
* Database Resilience - automated horizontal scalability.
* Database Availability - what’s the role of Kubernetes and the database.
* Utilizing both RAM and disk - set up Apache Ignite in a way to get in-memory performance with the durability of disk.
