Databases built for modern applications in the cloud


Optimizing Data Management in Containers With Kubernetes and DataStax

Containers gained popularity for their ability to package applications in a more efficient way than was possible with virtual machines. Orchestration technologies emerged as a way to manage these containerized applications throughout the datacenter. Kubernetes seems to have won the orchestration war by making it easy to deploy and scale stateless applications. The logical next step for these technologies is to do for databases what they’ve done for applications. But there are a few obstacles standing in their way. This white paper explains what those obstacles are and how DataStax Enterprise helps companies overcome them.

Running a Globally Distributed Cassandra Cluster on Kubernetes in the Cloud

There are several examples online that show how to get a Cassandra cluster up and running in Kubernetes, but very few on how to go beyond a simple deployment to a globally distributed and operationally viable one. In this talk, Mike will be going over the technical and operational issues uncovered with running in this type of environment, and the solutions his team have implemented.
