Recorded December 9, 2020

View a Complimentary Webinar Sponsored by Cockroach Labs

Kubernetes is a paradigm shift. It requires a wholly new way of thinking about our applications as services. But what about the database? Many try to deploy a legacy database on Kubernetes, but it is a bit of a square peg in a round hole.

Luckily, some have reimagined the database from the ground up to be distributed so you can deploy it ON Kubernetes and ensure uptime and survive any pod failure. You can deploy OLTP workloads on Kubernetes!

In this webinar we will walk through the architecture of a distributed database and talk about the following:

  • The challenges of databases on Kubernetes
  • Delivering SQL, easy scale, and survival
  • A deep dive into a distributed database architecture
  • RAFT, MVCC and key tech that fuels distributed database
  • Why distributed SQL is right for all workloads

This webinar is sponsored by Cockroach Labs and hosted by The Linux Foundation.
