How to Run a Database as a Service on Kubernetes

Building a consistent, scalable, distributed database is no easy task. Deploying a database as a service might be equally hard. When we chose a platform to deploy and run our CockroachCloud service, we chose Kubernetes and learned a lot along the way. Please join us for this session, where we will visit with Juan Leon and Josh Imhoff from our SRE team responsible for CockroachCloud. We’ll chat about: - Why we chose Kubernetes and what went into the evaluation - What are the biggest challenges to deploy anything “as a service” - Best practices for securing multiple Kubernetes clusters - Kubernetes difference across multiple cloud providers - Running and managing multi-region database on Kubernetes 00:00 Introductions 11:09 Why CockroachDB runs CockroachCloud on Kubernetes 18:18 Unexpected benefits of Kubernetes ---------- Careers: CockroachCloud: Blog: Docs: Community Slack: Twitter:
