Come and meet K8ssandra! A cloud-native distribution of Apache Cassandra™ built for running on Kubernetes

Apache Cassandra™ is used in cloud-native applications that require resilience and scalability - and lots of it! With multiple nodes replicating data all the time, understanding the health of these systems requires advanced knowledge and tooling. Users could spend a lot of time investigating and exploring solutions to ensure operational stability of their C* clusters. But wait, deploying a scalable, elastic and self-healing data plane in Kubernetes should be easy...shouldn't it?

Thanks to a great community collaboration called K8ssandra, it has become exactly that - easy. K8ssandra is a production-ready platform for running Apache Cassandra™ on Kubernetes. K8ssandra looks to provide these solutions from the start in a simple easy to deploy package - this includes metrics, data anti-entropy services, and backup tooling.


Join the DataStax Developers as we introduce you to how Cassandra’s architecture and logical fault domains are complimented by Kubernetes - you’ll take a typical containerized application and deploy it with a fully automated data service backed by Apache Cassandra™. Come and see how you can move fast with confidence and very few trade-offs. Don’t miss it!


Why Attend

You might think this is just another workshop. Think again! We do workshops differently - if you attend live you will get the chance to win some of our special Cassandra Community Swag. We will also offer you the choice of either:

1) a voucher that entitles you to take the DataStax certification for Apache Cassandra™ exam for FREE! These are normally priced at $145 each!


2) $300 credit to use on Astra - our Cloud-native Cassandra-as-a-Service platform. The perfect place to practice your new found Cassandra knowledge!

* In order to get the FREE certification voucher OR the credit, you need to attend the workshop LIVE and complete 1 of the hands-on exercises. You cannot receive both giveaways. *
