View a Complimentary Webinar Sponsored by Cockroach Labs

Kubernetes is a paradigm shift and it requires a “distributed mindset”. It seems relatively simple for a functional service, 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, you can deploy distributed databases ON Kubernetes, ensure uptime, and survive any pod failure. You can now deploy distributed 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
