The Form3 engineering team have been working on our multi-cloud payments platform project since 2020. CockroachDB is an essential technology for this project, ensuring that we have a resilient, consistent, and scalable data storage layer. In this talk, we'll share the most interesting challenges of the multi-cloud project and how we solved them together with the CockroachDB team: · Changing access patterns when moving from PostgreSQL to CockroachDB · Managing multi-cloud backups without impacting performance · Using our own encryption keys with External Secrets Operator · Implementing observability and monitoring with Grafana · Performance optimization and application design
