Apache Cassandra™ is the database of choice for large-scale cloud applications, while Kubernetes has emerged as the leading orchestration platform for deploying and managing containerized systems in the cloud. Since managing infrastructure has been standardizing around Kubernetes, many organizations are looking at the data plane as something that should also be managed under the same umbrella. Let's look at the possibilities that emerge when we put these powerful technologies together.Get Started
As teams work to containerize and deploy applications using Kubernetes, there’s increasing interest in running Cassandra in Kubernetes alongside applications as well. We’re developing a new certification program to help teams level up their skills to run Cassandra successfully in cloud-native deployments. The Apache Cassandra Operations in Kubernetes Certification will cover: running Cassandra in Docker containers, understanding how Cassandra maps to Kubernetes, and how to deploy and run Cassandra on Kubernetes using Kubernetes operators and other monitoring and management tools.
Are you developing a cloud-native application? Then you are in one of two camps: those who are using Kubernetes for lifecycle management, or those who are about to use Kubernetes for lifecycle management! In either case, you want to know how to integrate data persistence with Cassandra into your application and use Kubernetes to manage it all for you. We’ll show you how!Next Concept: Why Kubernetes and Cassandra?
A great feature of Cassandra is its elastic ability to grow and shrink as required. Kubernetes simplifies distributed systems lifecycle management. Combining Cassandra with Kubernetes is a synergistic and natural fit that allows you to resize your Cassandra cluster by telling Kubernetes what you want and letting Kubernetes figure out the details of how to get there.Next Concept: How to use Kubernetes with Cassandra
If you are new to Kubernetes, setting up anything but a simple Kubernetes cluster can be daunting. Add to this the complexities of managing a Cassandra cluster and the task becomes downright overwhelming. Have no fear! DataStax has collaborated with the Cassandra community on an open source Kubernetes Operator for Apache Cassandra™ that removes this complexity. The operator allows you to express familiar Cassandra concepts, such as datacenters and nodes, within Kubernetes. The operator also provides a controller to monitor and maintain your Cassandra cluster.Next Concept: Skill Building
Try Some Common Tasks - Resize a cluster, complete a mock deployment, execute a dynamic configuration, simulate a maintanance job.
