Multi-Cloud Demo of CockroachDB with Kubernetes Orchestration
Data Replication in Different Clouds & Different Countries, w/ Kubernetes & CockroachDB
In the Interop Challenge at OpenStack Summit 2017, a single CockroachDB cluster was deployed live across 15 private cloud vendors. Cockroach Labs Co-Founder and CEO Spencer Kimball and CoreOS CEO Alex Polvi led the demo, orchestrating the deployment using Kubernetes. The multi-cloud deployment spanned globally distributed clouds that included IBM, Red Hat, VMware, Rackspace, Huawei, Canonical, EasyStack, NetApp, Open Telekom Cloud, SUSE, T2 Cloud, Vexxhost, Wind, Platform9, and ZTE.
Global Data Architecture
This video features more than just a really cool demo. Today, people are using CockroachDB and CockroachCloud to build global data architecture. Utilizing different clouds in different regions is necessary in order to satisfy a global customer base. This live demo features a use case that will inevitably become more ubiquitous over time: Kubernetes running in multiple clouds, in CockroachDB nodes, on top of Openstack.
