Developer Newsletter: Why Tomorrow's Cassandra Deployments Will Be on Kubernetes

It seems we’ve crossed the line from people talking about deploying Cassandra on top of Kubernetes in production to actually doing it. Patrick McFadin (@PatrickMcFadin) interviewed several of these early adopters in this fascinating episode from the Accelerate online series.

There was so much goodness we released the original conversations on the Distributed Data Show (Spotify | SoundCloud | YouTube): 

  • How does Sky UK stay grounded with Cassandra and Kubernetes | Episode 148 with Alan Gibson, Principal Software Engineer @ Sky UK. 
  • What you need to know to deploy Cassandra in Kubernetes | Episode 149 with Christopher Bradford, Product Manager @ DataStax
  • Is self-driving data infrastructure our future? | Episode 150 with Raghavendra Prabhu, Sr. Software Engineer @ Yelp
