GridGain technology evangelist Akmal Chaudhri will speak at the Hamburg Kubernetes/Cloud-Native Meetup on December 5. His talk is titled, "Distributed Database DevOps Dilemmas? Kubernetes to the rescue!"
Akmal explains that 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," he said.
"It is straightforward to do the orchestration leaning on relational databases as a data layer, Akmal said. "However, it is more difficult to do the same when a distributed SQL database or other kind of distributed storage is used instead."
In this presentation, attendees will learn how Kubernetes can orchestrate a distributed database like Apache Ignite, in particular:
• 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.
