LEARNING SERIES

Apache Cassandra Operations in Kubernetes

As teams work to containerize and deploy applications using Kubernetes, there’s increasing interest in running Cassandra in Kubernetes alongside these applications. This hands-on learning series will help you level up your skills to run Cassandra successfully as part of cloud-native deployments with Kubernetes. After completing this series, you’ll understand the implications of containerizing Cassandra nodes, how to deploy and manage Cassandra clusters in Kubernetes, and how to securely connect applications to Cassandra clusters running in Kubernetes.
